What we have here is merely a taste, and I, for one, am left wanting much more.
Stellarscope do a fine, fine job of blending the atmospherics inherent to the genre with a nice pop sensibility.
Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind is worth watching if only to give one a much better context in which to appreciate Miyazaki’s movies.
There’s hardly a minute on the disc that isn’t awash with blackened waves of drone and drift, eerie scrapings and ringings, and whatnot.
K.C. Accidental perfectly straddles the line between Do Make Say Think and Broken Social Scene.
Forgettable, obviously churned out to fill a niche, and reeking of assembly line workmanship.
This is a perfectly crafted CD, both in packaging and in craft.

Hood updates their pastoral post-rock with glitchy electronics and Anticon hip-hop to create a compelling wintry sound.
Few bands convey the dreariness of the colder seasons, as well as the wistfulness for something better as well as Hood does.

An entirely logical, if sometimes sorely flawed, follow-up to Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love.
