"A haunted, intense and highly diverse collection of material. Continuously shifting off at tangents, its slow sprawl creeps from heartbreaking guitar melodies to sparse string compositions; concrete flickerings and modified machine-crunch to tranced-out Kraut-ish rhythm-pieces; cyclical minimalism to awe-filled drone-spaces; free-flowing improvised skitter and spark to raw location/life recordings. Beautifully played and composed, and far more than merely a follow-up, Telegraphs... sees set fire to flames pushing beyond the gains made on that previous effort and forging an increasingly autonomous space for the group. The results achieved on this release are jaw dropping at times, putting this project on par with best of folks working within similar areas. Merely comparing this group to other instrumental, ambient projects would be unfair and dishonest. It goes far beyond the average meanderings of the post-rock genre, exhibiting great influence from the minimalist movement, contemporary classical and tape music."
