    ii is a record that unveils itself slowly, initially sounding ugly and abrasive before the melodies surge to the fore. Once you look for it, there’s beauty amidst the ugliness.

    This is handcrafted, in-it-for-the-long-haul music, which will give many hours of pleasure.

    It’s a record that’s weird in all the right ways, and signals the emergence of an exciting new experimental force.

    Liima still recognizably sounds like Efterklang, but it seems like there's less pressure for them to construct a monumental statement here, and the group seem to enjoy their freedom.

    The lack of time taken for ii to form itself--no weeks off to go back and reconsider minor changes, no reigning in the level of experimentation--gives the album the feel of a jam, but without falling into an undefinable mess.

    The vocals float ethereally over the airy atmosphere, feeling wistful yet majestic. A dreamy ambience permeates the entire album, but each track has something different to offer.

    Although Liima’s first offering is somewhat of a mixed affair, it is worth sticking with, for both them and us.
