NME – Up A Tree
03rd April 1999
Record Review

Pick of the month

Renegade Belle & Sebastian member Stuart David runs amok with scratchy breakbeats, lo-fi electro-bleeps and loving wife in tow. Abandoning fey B&S musings in favour of wilful weirdness, this is a record which pairs tuneful pastoralism with clumsy experimentation, takes naïve synth detours and indulges in rambling Arab Strap-style narratives about Columbo. This is sweetly dysfunctional but thoroughly charming at the same time.
