    Australian trio surprises the audience with their "Toward The Low Sun" and first on the list - very experimental & loud "Furnace Skies", then little slowing down in "Sometimes I Forget You've Gone" - where they exhibited lots of piano parts. "Moon On The Land" - is a great folk song, a quiet ballad with violin stirring parties - as well as "Ashen Snow".

    It's good, but it's not essential.

    The recipe still works. [Mar 2012, p.52]

    The sparsity of their arrangements allows textures--the shushing of brushes on the snare, the scratch of the violin, the edge of distortion on the guitar--to shine through.
