..listening to Lost Friends And New Found Habits is like stepping through the looking glass into a world that’s ever so familiar and yet completely different from our own.
An ideal accompaniment to an evening cocktail, you could play much worse than Russell Huie when trying to entertain your dinner guests.
Robert Gomez isn’t trying to get your heart racing, but he is trying to make you feel better.
I suppose this LP is like Thunderclap Newman getting stuck in a lift with a very sedated Swell Maps and doing a hippy jam session…
Dylan, God bless him, has always done things his own way. So much so that you often get the impression that he really couldn’t give a monkeys as to what anybody thinks of him

By the time their tsunami of sound abated, the place was so overcrowded it felt like being back in the D.H.S.S. in the 1980’s.
This skinny lad, who looks like some 10 year old who’s undergone severe stretching courtesy of a medieval dungeon, used a laptop, an Emu card and a keyboard to create a ferocious noise which Incendiary just couldn’t get enough of.
The daft union of brass and wibbly electronics in the intro sets up a breezy song of lust which should have Neil Hanlon drooling.

Perhaps he’s lost the batteries, but the keyboards are mostly absent from this new release by Owen Ashworth
...imagine playing two copies of the Ultra Vivid Scene LP at pretty much the same time.
A curious one this, an album of two seemingly unrelated parts.
If you’re the sort of person who enjoys spaced out psychic vibes fit for a summer’s evening, you could do a lot worse than check this disc out.
I love this record, it’s such a beautiful idea, and despite the fact that the whole thing’s cranky as hell, it is charm made music.
I’ve said it before but this lot are a treasure, a once in a generation band.
I like Junior Boys, even though at times they do go a bit soppy on your ass.
