Simple, delicate, vignettes drenched in piano and strings from Padang Food Tigers with Ready Country Nimbus on Bathetic Records. Each of the fifteen tracks plays in my mind like an unfinished painting. Raw pieces of guitar, untreated keys, unexplained bits of static and field noise. As if each track is an elegant canvas onto which you must imbue your own images. Powerfully nostalgic and poignant beyond description. I found the second half particularly captivating as the tracks For Esme, and Hey, Relaxer close the album with a gentle sigh.
A patient and evolving listen without a single misstep. Available directly from Bathetic, housed in a glossy single sleeve on elegant black vinyl. Great pressing, clear clean backgrounds.
