I am always on the look out for music that is clever, that pushes the boundaries of conventional intrumentalism and that is unique in its form. I bought this on a whim having read a good review and I am really glad I did. The Beta Band are my all time fave and even though King Biscuit Time are great I need something to fall back on, something to tell me that there are always people with vision out there that can create beautiful music without compromise. There is definite elements of the Beta Band here with its weird random sound inclusions, also there are hints of Lemon Jelly with the sampling of tracks from old 1950s radio/films. Yet the thread that keeps it together is a wistful, ebb and flow of feel good folk lyrics and gentle sweeping guitar. Other sounds in the melting pot are perhaps a touch of Kings of Convenience and Belle and Sebastian but Tunng are more complex overall..But then credit to them they are thankfully really just out on thier own... this is truly beautiful, intelligent music...go buy it, as I am going to buy everything else they have done.
