Boomkat Product Review:
Released simultaneously with the equally limited (just 100 copies, folks) A Path Through The Sun, this disc is another half-hour dose of sonic experimentation, referencing krautrock, psychedelia and analogue drones. 'The Coming Tide' marks an auspicious start, embarking on an electrified, bluesy raga for duetting guitars and light percussion. It's an out-of-body dirge that seems to hover on the spot for five minutes or so, sounding like the opening to The Doors' 'The End' riffed on over and over. Straight after, 'Moonrise' brings The Alps into their own, installing lulling, layered tones that modulate and lap like soft waves over one another. This standard is carried over into 'Night Whispers', an equally pleasing carpet of drone, layered with radio interference and intercepted transmissions. More conventional instrumentation rears its head on 'Big Sur', making like an MV&EE avant-folk noodle before the more harmonious finger-picking of 'Morning Light' takes over. The longest and very possibly best piece here is reserved for last: 'Breaking Clouds' combines studio weirdness with snippets of dulcimer, delayed piano loops and sprawling sax solos - it simultaneously resembles a Steve Reich composition and a Valerio Cosi CD-r, which can only be a good thing. Highly Recommended.
