Comment: by listening to this 11-track issue one can concentrate on different aspects within the soundscape, which is conjured up by a guitarist, a bassist, and a drummer. Given that this sparse collective must be expert at conjuring up interesting sonic combinations and extracting picturesque colours from within their instruments. Indeed, they did it perfectly because one could discern all these sublime nuances to run throughout in a moody vein. It might sound oddly enough but this set of 51 minutes could be considered an easy listening session additionally. It is mostly due to a bet of jazz rock/fusion and yacht rock-inflected colourful keys. The Shy Trafficker`s album reminds by its tones and approach of Sea And The Cake, of which music is also easy (superficial?) and complicated at the same time. Indeed, music is a platform for talented people to surmount contradictions. The only stylistic exception is Santa Margarita, which is an arousing interlude of the recording of choral singing. In a word, it is the trio’s field recording case. In a nutshell, you can readily listen to this outstanding issue at work and while you are reading or eating or just having a pinpointed focus on it. There are no contraindications at all. This music is highly logic maybe even beyond logic at times. The issue is a part of the discography of Lost Children.
