Boomkat Product Review:
I would say I'm very well travelled, but likely not as well travelled as Heather Trost and Jeremy Barnes, who have been taking their sprawling and ambitious sound into the farthest reaches of Europe and the Americas for many years now. 'Cervantine' is their latest missive, and sees Barnes and Trost boldly move to Albuquerque to record these new tracks, something quite different for a band which cut their teeth in Hungary. The seemingly disparate Greek, Hungarian and Romanian sounds are still here but juxtaposed with a balmy Latin feel - possibly gleaned from the pervading Mexican influence on their setting. This might just be the band's most complete record to date, the recording is perfectly realized sounding somewhere between an Emir Kusturica soundtrack and one gleaned from a lesser-known spaghetti western, and the compositions rarely put a note wrong. I've held back on previous records from Barnes and Trost simply because I always had a feeling that the duo never went 'all the way there', here however it seems like they have reached their destination, all the sounds have joined together in blissful harmony. 'Cervantine' is the sort of album someone could play to you, and you'd be hard pressed to work out exactly when and where it was from, and round these parts there's not much higher praise than that.
