keef chemistry There’s so much to enjoy with this album. I hear experimentation and melodic repetition with a jazz infusion and evocative lyrics. A great step forward and a treat for my ears, right up to the final fade, leaving you to carry on in your head Favorite track: Any of These.

Gerrit Wessendorf When I first listened to it was especially Hellenica that stood out to me as a nice companion to Gentle People's classic, then track 7 which made me think of Wim Mertens I listened to years ago (but much better with the vocal), and now it's "Any of These" - each time I listen to it I discover something else to appreciate :) Excellent album. Favorite track: Hellenica.

Tara Clerkin Trio present their self titled debut LP on Laura Lies In. Similar to that directorial effect of filming at double speed and then slowing down for playback, the record ambles with assurance, expertly paced.

Opening with a jovial cacophony before the beatific ‘in the room’ confidently relieves, washing away any unease with an innately alien familiarity.

Coming to with the padded percussive patterns of 'Helenica', taking a moment to remember where you are in this temporal smudge. The serene contemplation of 'Any of these' signals we're homeward with a dependable afterglow, a friend you don’t need to thank for a good weekend.

A record existing disconnected from the daily getyadowns, a holiday from life, optimism as resistance against mundanity, something extraordinary amongst the ordinary, positively grey.

Recorded and produced by Dominic Mitchison. Mastered by Rupert Clervaux.
