I love this record. A kick in the eye for all those Luddites who say they don?t make good records anymore.

I?ve listened to this one on the way to the pool on Discman, late at night with refreshments, loud and everything in between, whilst not quite deserving classic status this is a great warm record full of involving yet elusive songs; a sense of continuity permeates as the musical and lyrical themes intertwine and lovingly crafted muted atmospheres reveal themselves.

Simple evocative songs transporting us to some endless autumnal Melbourne afternoon awaiting "her" and pondering the deep existential ache of the night and all things romantic, oh, and Gersey do it so well interweaving biblical allusions and shoe-gazery sonic sheets of nonspecific keys and guitars and reverb and ambience.

Lovely lovely production by Tim Whitten who never intrudes but effortlessly lets this wonderful subtle stuff weave its spell.
People, I don?t wanna analyse how they achieve their gliding melancholy-light, but I wanna tell you that I guarantee this record is worth finding and don?t blame me if four or five of these tunes don?t start insinuating themselves into your thoughts.

Good good stuff, indeed.
