It’s a collection of rich texture, pulsing vibration and reflective melody. A compelling union of Minamo’s restrained instrumentalism and Lawrence English’s considered sense of space and harmony. A Path Less Travelled collects distant sonic smoke signals passed between one island and another. “Between the placid beauty of Minamo’s disarticulated tunes and English’s harmonium and bass, the music courses with warmth... The drones are fat and windy, the instrumentation spindly and bright, creating a well-balanced sound mass that banks through prismatic timbres and textures.” – Pitchfork *Tracklisting: 1. The Path 2. Headlights 3. Glimmer 4. Springhead 5. Fireworks
