Sculpted slices of Cocteau Twins, spliced together by Seefeel's Mark Clifford. This release fuses bright melodies from Milk & Kisses era Cocteau Twins with the abstract surprises of out-of-phase loops: the result is concentrated euphoria. As to be expected from Clifford, the tracks are minimalist and hypnotically repetitive, but in glorious contrast the sonic texture is warm and organic, with Liz Fraser's vocals prominent.
Of all the Cocteau Twins and Seefeel releases, this is a standout. The natural progression of the Cocteau Twins' shimmering guitar-driven sound into ambient, hypnotic territory was unfortunately never pursued further than this EP; nor did Seefeel go on to explore more organic sounds. A wonderful pointer to what could have been: every lover of electronica or shoegazing pop should have a copy.
If you like this, you might also like Sigur Ros, Brian Eno's ambient works, Boards of Canada, or Susumu Yokota.
