This is the debut release by Reykjavik's Sindri Mar Sigfusson (Seabear) as Sin Fang Bous. Clangour is an album and a project that was a total surprise to Morr Music and to himself. Gravitational processes, drifts, accumulations, miniatures, a voice, a guitar, changing textures and re-colored leaves -- these are pocket symphonies in the vein of Brian Wilson. Songs, sounds and samples are crystal-clear and yet able to raise a storm. For example, "Advent In Ives Garden" is a greenhouse paradise of melody miniatures and sound pieces, and "Catch The Light" showcases Sindri's voice in choir-form. In this project there is a direct, intuitive sound that recalls Seabear, but that also embraces a pop naivety without embarrassment. Electronic squiggles, rallying percussion and a mishmash of guitars and vocals, this is a euphoric release in the spirit of Animal Collective, Caribou or Panda Bear, all wrapped up with a charming homemade pop bow.
