4 stars What a nice surprise ! I have been listening to and really appreciating this album since I received it some weeks ago from Ian Blackaby in the band.

The music here is not my normal fare. The band has named it post-jazz in the interview, published in August this year. I have just started to listen to jazz so post is a bit too early for me. But when listening to this album, I fully understand what they mean by post-jazz.

The music is trippy, spacy post rocky jazzy electronica with female vocals on the top, being the soloist. The vocals feels improvised and is probably improvised in the studio too. It feels like this is the music John Coltrane and Miles Davis would had done if given the computers and the electronics. That is, if they had recorded their stuff in 2011.

The vocals are excellent and the music too is great. There is no doubts this is a truly wonderful album although the music here feels a bit alien to me. I am not dialled into post-jazz......... yet. But there is no doubts this album is among the best albums released this year. It is highly recommended !

4.25 stars
