First heard the title track 'Like Home' on Radcliff and Marconi (Radio 2) and was mesmerised.

I ordered this way before the Feb-10 release date and couldn't wait to hear it, hoping it wouldn't disappoint and it certainly has not.

Delivered a week ago, it's on constant play. Tinged with a feeling of nostalgia and familiarity almost, these tracks are effortless and melancholic without being sad or depressing in any way. The vocals and use of the unusual instruments make for a beautiful, haunting collection of songs that flow smoothly through the whole CD.

A little gem of a CD.

Diverse and varied instrumentation is used to complement the vocalists restrained delivery to produce an immensely likeable and relaxing musical journey through a seemingly bygone age! To cut through the waffle this record definitely has a dated feel (in a good way). I love the variety of instruments used and the whole disc flows along in a beautiful melodic vein. Repeated listens are recommended to fully appreciate each individual track but I would suggest that this is ideal listening for relaxation after a hard day. Track one immediately got under my skin together with 3 or 4 others. The others duly followed after further plays. Highly recommended.Appearing live in london next month!

Echoes of Grandaddy. These songs are introspective and captivating. The instrumentation is soothing and intensely atmospheric. This is an album which is instantly likeable but has enough depth to ensure that it will stand the test of time

The Musée Mécanique is a fascinating penny arcade in San Francisco where over a hundred, working-order antique amusements are open to the public. On first appearance, the band seem a less intriguing proposition. Portland-based - who isn't? - and surfing a 2008 rerelease of their debut album Hold This Ghost, they inhabit sonic space like an inoffensive breeze through one of Ray Davies's lazy afternoons.

Not that this isn't a likeable seam to mine. Their folkish indie and ebbing electronic percussion nudges Grandaddy awake on several occasions, and at their most folkish on the bucolic picking of "The Things That I Know" their shuffling nods and winks bathe the listener in aural sunshine. Notably, to coin an awkward term, it's all rather un-Americana-esque and rather British as a result - restrained, reserved and pastoral.

Sadly though, this unchallenging soundtrack suffers just as The Leisure Society did last year. There is little to fault, but in the same caveat there is little to recommend. At their most effective, Musée Mécanique offer impeccable rhythms and laidback accordion and on "Fits And Starts" it's all rather lovely. In other places however, Hold This Ghost is too insubstantial, too unwilling to make a scene and certain lyrics are questionable to the point of jarring. For example, on "The Propellors", Micah Rabwin labours through precise dates to general ineffect, "December 17th, 1903/ Propellers turn to wings/ The age of air at hand."

Just as their namesake is, Musée Mécanique are a curiosity caught out of time. They seem to offer a window on another age, an age that unfortunately no longer impacts the present. Though a pleasant distraction, the mournful tones of Hold This Ghost - now already a two-year old vehicle - struggle in the fast lane.
