STEREO EMBERS:

Gently wavering on the gossamer horizon and quite possibly the birth moment of glacial folk – is, to put it in the most distillate form possible, a trip.
- Dave Cantrell

Exposé Online

Across the ten tracks, ideas shift and morph in almost an impressionist setting, with pastel colored melodies, long moments of darkness, fleeting and muted voices, textural sonic backdrops and stirring suspense. Black Sails is a fully realized work that succeeds in conveying that passive feeling and peaceful contemplation.

Peter Thelen

GOLDMINE MAGAINE

It’s a haunted winter’s afternoon of an album whose instrumental textures are occasionally broken by full-on vocals (Dyble’s “Rainy Day Vibration” is a showpiece for one of the most illuminative vocalists around); occasionally by muttered distance; and occasionally (“Chocolate River”) by the sound of a full on psychedelic freak out. Which completely shatters the mood, but when has that ever been a bad thing?
