Excellent LP, at once quirky and irresistible nocturnes,

Initially a little skeptical of this, but happily surprised with its tightly consistent melodies and production quality, which build fairy-tale like soundscapes and imagery. All of the songs seem like twinkly nocturnes or swirly, hypnotic affairs, incorporating a host of strings, organs/keyboards, and electrics, some horns. They're hardly pop ditties or beaty danceables, but nevertheless force repeated plays. Lyrics are lovely and clear, and remind one of Grimes, Hex, and Cocteau Twins but with a more dainty, accessible vibe; while the music is paced and themed like Blue Nile, 17 Pygmies, Talk Talk. Great for slow nights in, background/reading music (in the most respectful way), walks, chillout. Best tracks: goddess eyes 2, fur felix, in the same room, our sorrows.
