“Swedish psychedelic collective Me & My Kites have evolved considerably since the 2012 recording of their excellent debut album "Like a Dream Back Then".

Their latest "Is It Real or is it Made" strips back the psychedelia of that debut in favor of a more progressive, indefinable sound, with a distinctive Canterbury flavor. Vocalist Lisa Isaksson seems to be a more dominant voice on this release, and her pure, folk-inflected vocals, combined with Karin Engqvist's lyrical piano work, often reminds this listener of a more progressive minded version of the sort of things that the Unthanks have been unleashing over the last few years. The epic closing piece "Narcissus/War/Curse/ Common Life" is one of the most impressive suites of music I've heard in a long time - the perfect closer to a diverse, individualistic album, and a sign-post to an extremely fruitful future for this exciting ensemble.” (The Active Listener)
