godot - 2012-02-29 This album didn't get nearly enough love last year. I love how it sounds like sandblasted aluminum, with extraneous features pared away, like it was written on an Apple Airbook.

godot - 2012-02-29 Also they did this fascinating thing on the album opener "Selfoss" where some Nordic Folk song emerges from pure wet reverb (no original - it could pass for Afx ambient) to the pure dry signal original. Basically a mission statement that ambient/minimal house is the modern folk/tribal music. You can see the same aesthetic at work in the costumes here.
