Boomkat Product Review:
Andrea Parker's Aperture imprint pays on the promise of its potential with a brilliant collaboration between Mira Calix and Seefeel's Mark Clifford. The tracks were all crafted intermittently between 1994 and 2004 over a succession of caffeine and nicotine fuelled night sessions, using whatever tools they had to hand and recorded onto a variety of formats, from to floppy discs to Dat Tapes and zip drives. When the pair revisited the material they decided the best method of presentation was raw and naked, no overdubs and very little post-production meddling, lending the album a deliciously haphazard and of-the-moment sense of time and atmopshere. Clifford's near-sacred melodic touch is clear throughout the album, mingling with Calix's breathy and ethereal vocals in a very organic manner, despite the entirely electronic nature of the tracks, giving an intimacy and personal ambience that proves to be a key feature of their collaboration. At times we're reminded of a lo-fi version of the incredible Coh Plays Cosey sessions, while other moments have a sort of medieval chamber pop solemnity that really captures the late night feel.
