"Felicia and Sylvain's debut collaborative effort is quite noticeably the work of two of the field's most noteworthy songwriters. From 'Dans La Lumiere''s gentle electronic flickering that brings to mind Labradford or Stars of the Lid, to the gorgeous (and unexpected) English vocals of 'Aberdeen' -- 'down by the river, I shot down my baby' -- this record is one that no one will fail to be stirred by. Like a serene, slow-motion window into the world of Paris' lively architecture, or a glimpse into where silence meets sound at their closest point -- you will not forget this record. Sylvain Chauveau is a name that you cannot escape these days. You'll find it on the lips of everyone interested in beautiful, subtle, individual-sounding music. Chauveau has toured with Sigur Rós and played with Christian Fennesz, as well as releasing for Fat Cat along with numerous albums on the Type label. Being one of Paris' most prominent modern composers, he has scored films and played around the world, while finding time to play with the bands Arca, ensemble 0 (say 'zero') and On (with Steven Hess). But, of course, Chauveau only offers half the input in this creative project. Felicia Atkinson is an artist, poet and songwriter, and has a discography no less noteworthy than Sylvain's. Together, they are truly at their best."
