How To Live
a record that laps upon your ears with soft waves of floating pastoral melodies, the psych-tinged, ambient folk collective’ full-length debut is a beguiling listen that relishes the bliss found in taking things slow. Plaintive cello strains melt into motorik beats. Pastoral field recordings drift through looping guitar figures. Rising melodies shine with reflective saxophone accents, placing the record somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle between the expansive motorik of Can, the Canterbury progressiveness of Caravan and the burgeoning experimentalism of Talk Talk’s ‘Colour Of Spring’. It’s a work of surprising layers and limitless depths, impressing more strongly with each listen. “rural motoric newcomers find themselves in a field of their own” 4/5 – mojo.
