available on vinyl again as a 180g pressing, with the original tracklisting & a CD of the album plus bonus tracks.

Though they quickly traded the warm electronic pop of 'The Amateur View' for a colder vision of primitivist synth pop & atmospheric noise, To Rococo Rot proved here that they're still at the top of their game artistically. they still occasionally reference some familiar forms - swirling ambient noise reminiscent of Oval as well as the angular, downtempo indie rock often found on Tortoise records - the trio (plus guest I-Sound) clearly have a knack for creating music that's understated yet deeply felt. 'First' frames a few beautiful, atmospheric chords around downtempo heart-monitor beats, while 'Pantone' transforms a series of compact disc errors into surprisingly lush trance-state ambience. Two of the highlights are 'From Dream to Daylight' & 'Along the Route', a pair of Tortoise-styled tracks featuring another guest, violinist Alexander Balanescu, merging contemporary classical into experimental techno.
