Boomkat Product Review:
Blending ancient folk, avant-garde chamber music and occasional dalliances with the kind of melodies that might have been lifted from some 1940s film soundtrack, Daniel Padden's The One Ensemble return in an expanded format, now with added players and voices. It's a move that's clearly paid off, and this new record is a unique and enigmatic thing, with tracks like 'The Dig' ranking among the more adventurous takes on the sort of pseudo-classical sounds you'd hear from the likes of Clogs, Balmorhea or 7 Hertz. When vocals crop up they knit nicely into the mix as if they were just another instrument, sounding rather surreal in their strained falsetto on the already rather strange 'The Beam' and adding to the general air of Hermann Nitsch-meets-Sun Ra evident on 'The Sun'.
