about

A truly sublime handpicked album of miniature middle-of-the-night home listening gems! Théodore opens his debut album with the glockenspiel and music box grandeur of 'I Dreamt I was Throwing Stones At the Sea' which proves that he's is no po-faced Fridge wannabe. Constructed from a fusion of live instrumentation, samples and natural sounds, 'A Summer Has Never Been, A Winter She Fears' is both frosty and warm, precisce and diffused, half heard and blindingly clear and knitted together throughout by Théodores predatory instinct for what creates a cohesive whole. Whilst 'No Spring' is a stilted, almost atonal set of acoustic guitars and rupturing string fissures, 'Tree Wish' is a conversely shimmering collection of fluttering chimes and hypnotic rhythms that can't help but bring to mind the less abstract excursions of electronic music at its finest Elsewhere, 'Madam Ortance' treads a similar path to Leaf's Colleen, 'Montmartre' is a gloriously unsettling visit to a haunted Eastern Bloc fairground whilst 'Isobel' takes Sigur Ros-scope orchestration and under wires it with rancorous digital rumbles and pulsing, filtered synths. An album of utter melodious rectitude - highly recommended!
