Boomkat Product Review:
Seems that the man all about town, Mr David 'Gastr Del Sol' Grubbs, is trying to outdo his previous partner Jim O' Rourkes' workrate. Quickly following up his improv CD on Blue Chopsticks this is a return to the late poprock Gastr sound explored in a more acoustic direction with his last Drag City album 'The Spectrum Between'. This time the same classic floating americana is given a slightly more abstract tinge (in places) and a harder electronic edge via three tracks in collaboration with Drew and Martin of Matmos. Beautifully addictive and possessing many moments of jaw dropping complexity all fired through with David's unique wordplay and warm fire. Highly recommended.
