"First ever vinyl edition of this album, originally released in NZ as a tiny cdr edition on Alastair Galbraith's Next Best Way label in 2008, four years before the release of Felt. Overall a more polarized and pleasantly tumultuous listen compared with the starkly beautiful Felt, but revealing just as much subtle grace. Playing out as though occasionally whipped by a salty wind, with gusts of psychedelic noise rising here & there to engulf these fragile poetic songs, sending them infinitely outward. A more externalized & expansive listening experience then the inward stillness of Felt, and a perfect mirrored pair to the later. These songs will beam deep into your unconscious before you've even realized you remembered them. The sound here is decidedly 4-track home-fi, with a gauzy analog mist ever present & the sounds of the environment gently creeping in. A largely solo affair, but with considerable & highly distinctive contributions from Alastair Galbraith, adding an electrified & disorienting edge. Truly wonderful stuff here, with plenty of that unique New Zealand magic. Raw, pure, and completely unforgettable? packaged in a totally hand assembled fold-out art paper cover with screen printed text & pasted artwork, nicely matching the Felt covers. Edition of 300 copies."
