Lo-key indie drone
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is another one of those lo-key indie drone albums that is actually quite interesting and great to listen to while driving on a sunny day with the widows in the car down. "Sun Drawing" is my favorite song, acoustic and light around the edges. When I first heard this song it was like comparing it to being six years old and opening a fresh box of crayons in kindagarden. It's just a burst of colors and sweet smells. "Crystalization of Salt at Night" is smooth and jazzy. Quite interesting. I think the girl in the band, Rachal, was in Flying Saucer Attack, but I can't confirm that. Someone was telling me that. Other than that, it's pretty obscure, so you just have to take a chance. It will dazzle you in a way, even thought it's lo-key and not put up with high gloss of studio trickery. You can almost hear the ghosts in the attic above their studio as the drummer clicks his brushes on the snare drum and the clarinet player prepares his lips for his solo and the girl singing sort of forgets to look at the lyric sheet on her music stand and just sort of mumbles whatever comes into her head at that moment in time. Creepy but colorful and interesting all the while."
Great late night Contemplative Companion

"Movietone's sound is slow and sweet, like a dream of grandma's house in the snowy woods that you wake up from in the middle of the night in New York City, with stars all around your bed and a sweet melancholy around you so palpable you can't help but float on it."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This music draws from the same post-psychedelic aesthetic as Flying Saucer Attack (which used to be David Pearce and Movietone member Rachel Brook) even though it doesn't sound at all similar. It still goes to the same deep, unsettling emotional place as fsa's music, and Kate Wrights lovely, whispered vocals, drones that dart in and out of songs like whispy filaments of feeling, and unforgettable repeated guitar figurations (like on "Of Salt at Night") continue to echo in one's mind long after the album is over. This is music for thinking adults, not twenty-something hipsters or thirty-something dinner party monsters. I have all three Movietone albums, and each of them is like an incredibly complex, very rare, old red wine: only to be savoured on special occasions. Delicious, deep and heady stuff."
