Much anticipated follow up to 'Flock of Bleeps' which developed some pieces that had originally appeared on compilations. Younger Brother are Simon Postford (Hallucinogen/Shpongle) and Benji Vaughan (Prometheus). Their first release contained some quite spaced out experimental chill out, notably 'Crumblenaut' which was a great companion to the Shpongle sound. Fans expecting more of the same are likely to be in for a treat, or surprise and a major evolution in the Younger Brother sound. What Simon and Ben have done for 'The Last Days of Gravity' is create electronic music using a full band of musicians playing 'real' instruments and then taking the sounds and processing them. Anyone who has seen 'Younger Brother' live either at 'The Glade Festival' or any of the 'Twisted Records' parties, or even the recent rare appearance at a club in London will know that they can really pull it off live mixing fluid electronic ambience with the space rock acoustic sounds.
'The Last Days of Gravity' starts with an instrumental 'Happy Pills' that sets the scene as a good rolling introduction to the overall mood of the tracks on the CD. A certain groove based progressive dance music with electronica overtones. It is with 'All I want' that the album really starts to form a familiar but different parallel to other 'Younger Brother' or 'Shpongle' tracks. This track features vocalist 'Ruu' who breathes a subdued love ballad to heaven. This is one of many time displaced moments on the CD Simon Postford makes it all feel a whole lot longer than it's 9 minute running time as the track slowly builds. It starts developing a 'One of These Days' sound and has trappings of other Pink Floyd tracks but much more electronically processed.
Another track featuring 'Ruu' is more downtempo 'Ribbon on a Branch'.

A different outing to 'A Flock of Bleeps'. There are more voices and real instruments (including pedal steel would you believe) and the sound is brighter, forward and has more conventional beats, and one track that is almost a song with lyrics. Tracks still morph seamlessly one into the next without a pause.
It may be different, but there's enough here to make those who loved 'Bleeps' feel right at home while they're getting used to the rest of it (particularly the first and last track). So it's a gradual progression into pastures new rather than a complete change and anyone that liked 'Bleeps' or anything Shpongle is going to find a lot to keep them playing the disc.

It's difficult music to classify, and it doesn't fit easily into any particular slot. If you like electronic music, Four-tet, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, even Eat Static or Eno, there are things from all of them that you'll recognise here, but it's still original and different. Well worth a try.

Bizarrely I was recommended to this by my Dentist (who also recommended Talk Talk's 'Spirit of Eden' so clearly a man of some taste). Assuming you like Electronica / Dance - and if not why are you even here? - you should just go and buy this. There are no bad tracks - 'Sleepwalker 2' is a little dull - and several great. Try 'Your Friends are Scary' and 'Ribbon on a Branch'. It's melodic, interesting, and it has variety. For me it's up there with the David Holmes, Cinematic Orchestra and Hybrid so if you like them, try this.

Truly a masterpiece of an electronic music with no limits - there's a bit of everything in it.
My favorite electronic album ever.

Firstly, I am in total agreement with Mushroom's review above....I say no more really. (Fab review, great descriptions) :-)

This is a very different album to the Flock of Bleeps album and does definitely remind me of Pink Floyd,, which is fine as I enjoy their sounds equally......wasn't keen to start off with but as I listened more I enjoyed it more and more. These guys are geniuses and great to see that they can come up with different sounds but still you know it's them.

All I Want - not sure what it reminds me of, is it Pink Floyd or someone else? My mind can't think right now ;-) Great track......more uptempo, Pink Floyd, yes......

Elephant Machine - love this track - more psychedelic sound as their previous sound - synth/ electronic sounds.......bassy, great track! One of my favourites definitely.

I am a Freak - again similar to original sounds of theirs....enjoy.

A great album - very different to their original alubm but definitely worth buying........expand the mind!
