  1. Here there's a slightly warmer feeling. More central, tweaked vocals add a new dimension to the "hard beats + bittersweet melodies" pattern of the past; songs like the gorgeous, ice-melting "Zoetrope" glide along on simple celestial glimmers without a single bass-line in sight.

'Kid For Today' opens with a dia projector-driven beat to evoke frame per frame the childhood memories. 'Amo Bishop Roden' is a lush, eerie piece that evolves organically and sucks the listener in. The wonderful title track is less abstract and sounds more like their other work. 'Zoetrope', the closer, doesn't really fit in the mood set by the other three tracks and seems a bit out of place. On its own, though, it's a stellar trip to anything you can imagine. 'In A Beautiful Place In The Country' is a great starting point to grasp the sound of these fantastic artists. Highly recommended to anyone. Full Review »
