"Based on a series of field recordings taken during a Tuscany stage of the Giro D'Italia 2002, The Colli di Pedona Tapes is probably the most psychedelic release to date from this fascinating Welsh duo. After a series of albums on the Ochre label that established them as one of new rising forces from the UK underground, Colli di Pedona is a slightly different take on their trademark sound: languid, luminous ambient tracks melt into minimal drones (the aptly titled 'Vortex'), while the guitars sound even softer and lighter than usual. The Colli di Pedona album is all about painting with music and capturing the sleepy, sun-soaked atmosphere of a Tuscanian summer afternoon -- subtle, mesmering, dream-inducing soundwaves build up an ecstatic, meditative sensation that peacefully flow through the album -- and it's just beautiful to lose yourself in these tranquil waters. Cycling never sounded so good."
