3 stars This 4 track instrumental EP by Galician Pablo Ursusson's project fills the 3 year gap between full length releases while also occupying a distinct niche from previous offerings. Translated to "Secrets of the Red Fox", 3 of its 4 tracks are ruled by the hurdy-gurdy, giving this a much more tradition feel. Combining the drone of the bagpipe and the, well, drone of the accordion, the hurdy gurdy is an acquired taste. These two characteristics limit the appeal to prog audiences outside of those who enjoy ethnic folk music with few progressive touches. Still, Ursusson's hurdy gurdy is well supported by bodhran and other percussion, which apparently he also plays, and the tempos are varied. The finale is a flute dominated closer "An Dro" ( a type of Breton dance) that breaks the spell like the caress of a cool breeze, added violins intermingling to perfection.
