Boomkat Product Review:
One year since their 'Weathering' album landed to much acclaim from fans and the press, Epic 45 have invited The Remote Viewer, The Gentlemen Losers, Fieldhead, Jasper TX, E.L. Heath and Sarah Kemp to "weather" said album with lovely results. It opens with an exclusive new track called 'Leaving Traces' from the Staffordshire duo, before The Remote Viewer tickle their crackle box into action on a tenderly scuffed rework of 'The Village Is Asleep'. Meanwhile, their sometime collaborator and producer Charles Vaughan stirs 'People Say This Place Is Slowly Dying' as a diffuse piece of nippy pop-ambience and Fieldhead dissolves 'Leaving Traces' in a whorl of shimmering electro-acoustics beside The Toy Library's breathy rework of 'Ghosts I Have Known' and The Gentlemen Lovers heavy-hearted 'Washed Up' retake. However, we'd have to say they've saved the best for last with Jasper TX's subtly layered, drawn out and droning render of 'Evening Silhouettes'.
