Comment: first of all, I have had a successful day behind. After a day's hard work I visited and bought approximately 10 tapes for 30 Euros by Trash who is curating his own amazing Trash Can Dance label. By the way, I got my personal project's four tapes of the latest issue additionally (Autharktos' Warped Irrpulses). And now I am listening to the Italian one-man-project Safir Nòu's 7-track masterpiece on the amazing La bèl imprint, which used to run in the vein of chamber pop-based easiness and high melodic affinity (it might remind you of Penguin Cafe Orchestra at Blue Dance and other tracks as well), and one of the exceptions do happen at Puppets' Waltz filled in with joyful gypsy melodies and positive sensibility. At New Lunacy cinematic post-rock progressions will take over the course for a 7-minute. It will be ending with a hymnal orchestration which could be considered one of the top moments within the album. In overall, it is fairly enjoyable how these instrumental passages used to elegantly roll over your mind again and again. In a word, the result will appear in the list of the best albums of Recent Music Heroes in 2016. If you like such artists as Bark Cat Bark, Beirut, Tortoise, Esmerine, A Silver Mount Zion, Tindersticks, Yann Tiersen then this issue is also your cup of tea. Get it! Support it!
