Album Review
Reviewed 2006-09-03
Sunny compositional pop experiments. Lazy summertime headphone ambiance with lots of samples and sounds of (synthesized?) critters, water, and sundry things rustling. Very low energy throughout.
FCC Clean. Picks: 2, 6, 8

1. 2:56 Floating, whirring synth, with soft rustling sounds last 1:11, then
quick swell of noise for the last few seconds.
*2. 5:31 Soft, droning ambiance with thunderbursts of bleeping noise.
Cold start. Sufjanesque trilling flute interlude towards end, then
close, densely atmospheric outro.
3. 2:35 Very low energy. Swelling, starlike synths/keys and softly
picked guitar. Sweet and glitchy.
4. 3:38 Cold start, cold stop. Tinkling, rainy sounds with super smooth synths/keys and scratchy, tapping overtones. Transition at 2:40 to shuffling and tinkling sounds with soft background guitar.
5. 13:35 Very soft with a slow start. Folksy guitar and rainy
atmosphere, with a lot of very high pitched, droning tones. Nice wet
clacking sounds towards end fall off in a long (1:30, approx) outro.
*6. 3:26 22-sec intro. Fuzzy and rubbing, with soothing guitar and odd, near-silent
sound breaks. Sweet and distorted vox. Very soft 1:40-2:55, then
builds to a noisy cold stop. For a singer/songwriter set, fade out at 1:40 and go to
a new song.
7. 1:31 Random soft noise.
*8. 6:27 Dry shaker rhythms, then atmospheric pop building to a sudden
transition to soft rowboat sounds at 4:48.
9. 4:11 Glassy, fading synth drones.
