This is Glissando’s 3rd Loom release and contains the motions of the likes of Stars of the Lid and Charalambides next to the more ‘song’ based sounds of Low or Cocteau Twins. 1. and Before We Knew It Had Happened At All It Was Over (3.56), 2.What the Exultant Heart Calls Good (16.40), 3.Into Sleep To Create A Flame (5.16), 4.A Whisper of the Eye (7.58), 5.A Fleeting Glimpse (9.22), 6.Love Or No Love (28.42).
