incredibly warm & intimate recording & perhaps blackshaw's most concise, consistent & overtly melodic to date.

the 6 original pieces contained on the album are based alternately around grand piano & nylon-string classical guitar (as opposed to his usual 12 string), with spare & subtle vibraphone & b3 organ parts overdubbed by blackshaw himself. geneviève beaulieu (menace ruine/preterite) adds her stunning & powerful voice & words to one song. “in contrast with his sublime guitar playing, blackshaw's work on piano is more direct & measured, & on this track his blocky, almost jazzy chords storm behind beaulieu's agile vocals. it is a mesmerizing performance…” 4/5 – pitchfork.

love is the plan, the plan is death
