I have a fascination for subcultures, specially those with a close-knit relationship with leftfield and challenging music, so music does take center stage here. Glad if it resonates with you in some way and you discover something new here, in which case you should explore more and support the artists.

I always feel so absorbed and withdrawn when listening to this album, specially this second movement - the longest and quietest - of the album. It always reveals a very particular shade of emotion as it brings some fine old memories from around the same time this was released back in 2003 (Xmas day to be precise)... as it often happens when you listen to music that was played during a significant life event. Because of such memories this track always feels nocturnal and wintery... cold and warm at the same time, like a late night drive, window down, cigarette in hand summoning deep thoughts.

Back in early 2008 I had the pleasure of being in PR meetings with the English band while working for a London based fashion brand. Fair to say that at the time I had all but lost my love for post-rock à la Mogwai or Explosions in the Sky... and interest in the genre was anchored solely on Godspeed You! Black Emperor or This Will Destroy You.. During those times I was into the more challenging sonic scapes of a then formidable rise in sludge and other atmospheric extremes (think Boris, Nadja, A Storm of Light, Russian Circles...) and I just couldn't touch it. But when listening to this album for the first time, it hit me that the band sounded like one of my all time favourite bands of the 80's: And Also The Trees. And I gave in.
