field music's peter brewis & paul smith (maximo park) together craft a talk talk-esque song suite that creates a delicately restrained yet richly descriptive soundworld.

drawing inspiration from disparate musical & poetic sources, the pair have come together in a playful departure from their respective work with field music & maximo park. based around text from paul smith's travel writing & peter brewis's chamber-band arrangements, the music wraps itself around the words & the places they chronicle. a rare piece of music (although not that rare when it comes to the prolific work of the uber-talented brewis brothers) that quietly announces the arrival of a potent new collaboration. "a suite of spiky, modern-classical compositions delicately showcasing smith's sensitive, frequently affecting observations on where he has fetched" - mojo.
