Now, this one is excellent. Beautifully atmospheric and melancholy, with stretched-out tones, trombone and gorgeous understated percussion all starting the proceedings. Some of this is very challenging, with brilliant use of hand percussion and odd sampled sounds, becoming like an electronic Third Ear Band, Nurse With Wound or even Negativland at times. Some of the collaged sections are tremendous, with an uneasy strangeness alongside more floating gliding movements. By the way, I swear I heard a brief snippet of Marge Simpson’s voice in this!

Now, this one is excellent.
