The vibe is mannered psych-folk embellished with simmering electronics, recalling Super Furry Animals at their most reflective on “Patterns Somewhere”. here and there, meanwhile they abandon the song: the gorgeous “Luftglider”, in particular, imagining Klaus Schulze transported to a rural English idyll.
Someone’s needed to do an album like this for a long time. Electronic but also multi-instrumentally organic in the way that a hook-up between Popol Vuh or Ash Ra Tempel and acid-folk dons The Incredible String Band might be if both those acts were current; but then washed with a poised, contemporary sheen of interpretive, skilfully referenced analogue futurism.
