"this album is truly excellent. it's beautiful experimental music, with backwards electric guitars, pasted on a canvas of what are essentially folk songs. at least that's what i hear, this album is about impossible to describe. check it out, you won't be regret it."
As much a "mirrorwork" as "seely girn" was a seely girn...

"Alastair seems slowly to be turning into a giant spider: with each album the songs become less like songs, more like nodes on a web, the struggles of trapped insects translated into delicate strings of vibration... Sometimes you still get an actual verse-and-chorus 'song' (albeit one which most likely came out on 7" vinyl three or four years ago!) but the rest are more like poems, or sketches: random noise-blossoms, palsied violin-scraping, delicate plucked accoustic guitar, a few whispered fragments of lyric. What the hell is going on down there in NZ, besides the normal processes of aging and entropy? Because other than the perenially reliable Tall Dwarfs, all the old Flying Nun and Xpressway alums have been noticeably silent in recent years, Galbraith included.Check out his contributions to the Clean and Skip Spence tribute albums, also -- both are wonderful."
