The layered samples of guitar, clarinet, percussion, wind-up toys (don't let it put you off), synths, glockenspiels and so on might seem too strong a concoction for most constitutions, but the sound, although complex feels optimistic, complimentary and lush - like a retiring friend who knows what to say and when.
Mogwai do leave an indelible imprint on the album, and their guiding hand and influence can be felt throughout, so much so as to even credit Stuart Braithwaite's rhythmic handclaps in the liner notes, but this work is entirely Ronald's and equally of merit, deserving to stand greater than as an anecdote in their tale.
So what does it sound like? Not being familiar with Mogwai I cannot comment on this comparison, but after a couple of listens I detect a background of Cocteaus circa Victorialand, a hint of Bees and a smattering of 60s electronica likeTerry Riley and Philip Glass. It has a good-natured and relaxed groove, melodies that rise and fall, with all sorts of sounds drifting in and out of the mix. This is music to absorb rather than to concentrate on, with the action going on in another frame, out of the corner of the eye. Once absorbed though it leaves the world a happier place. Why the dropped star? The last two or three tracks seem a bit samey and outstay their welcome. Perhaps they will grow on me though.
Above all, boring, and certainly not evidence of 'good taste'.
In short, I loved it..
You like pastoral post-rock/machine driven soundscapes? Try Village Orchestra, Fridge, Sunken Foal, Flying Saucer Attack, some Cornelius and of course Mogwai etc etc etc.
The later 'The Quickening' by this very band has a little more song-development and even some melody, even the odd Zappaesque motif thrown in (see 'Ocean Potion'), but still really only for the middle-class afeard of music types.
Anything but this.
