3 stars Formed by Godspeedyou! Black emperor, this project combines with a certain pleasure rather sinister, emotional acoustic soundscapes to post rock. The result presents introspect, pessimistic and painful pieces with some reminiscence of Philip Glass (in the melodic repetitive motifs, I'm particularly referring to "Microphones in the Trees" which makes echoes to "songs from liquid days"). The voices are mixed together and add a desperate tone to the ensemble. Not at all their rockiest moment but quiet, beautiful moody, simplistic compositions. A coherent, atmospheric work but slightly naive and boring after several listenings.
