 Lived with this album quite long now: surreal lyrics, great melodies and, fine textures, brilliant singing - Tunng is fantastic, even without the highly experimental approach of their first two albums.

 P.S. Mike Lindsay is a nice guy. In an interview he told me about TunngĀ“s six months of working in a darking windlowless studio space in London. Surprisingly a lot of heavenly sunshine harmonies were set free in these surroundings that may easily distract from some weird, funny and black stuff inside. Lindsay also produced some songs of the new album of Serafina Steer, "Cheap Demo Bad Science", a London-based harp player who is definitely not playing like Joanna Newsom. Very good in her own way. And, at last, Mike made me keen to see "The Motorcycle Diaries" on DVD. And, yes, a fantastic film with beautiful songs!
