It’s a travelogue of sorts too; the record skips round Eastern and Central Europe a lot; Zero In Grimaldi’s Playing features an Austrian Duke laying down the law in no uncertain manner...
Really it is, one of those records that you keep playing over and over again.
OK, let me warn you it’s long, indulgent and painstaking in its thoroughness and dedication: and not everything will be for you. But the good bits are very good indeed.
A tremendous record and one to spin after a hard day’s fell walking, pint in hand.
It is fair to say that Shane O Connor (the recluse who goes under the name of Shaneolinski) plays the ingénue card as often as he can
As usual with remix LPs there a plethora of confusing sounds and remixer names to negotiate but I can safely say that after a slightly quiet beginning BINS settles down to be a powerful record.
I love the vibe on this Trunks record; it’s really playful
Rather like an immense slow-moving river, with hidden currents and eddies, the album plots its patient, primeval course oblivious to the bystanders on the banks.
So it’s derivative. And so what it’s still a good listen.
Trumpets I tell you. A lot of trumpets.
rewards your attention in the most extraordinary manner
Invigorating and challenging stuff, and a real shame it’s all too short.
it’s predictable dad radio rock of the highest order, and I like it.
Solace is the fifth LP from John Tejada and Takeshi Nishamoto, the duo who make up I’m Not a Gun, and you can certainly hear the fact that they’re an established act
Don’t be put off by my jocular tone in this review; this is a great LP, it’s just a bit nuts: very much in the style of fellow Northern pranksters The Witch and the Robot or Ceramic Hobs.
Fabulous, re-affirmative stuff and should be the sound of your summer.
