Review of Ballads Of The Research Department [12k1068]

Monsieur Delire (FR)

A duo consisting of Craig Tattersall and Andrew Hargreaves, with a sound occasionally reminiscent of Minamo. 12k continues to expand their sound palette, since <i>Ballads of the Research Department</i> features vocals (guests Chris Stewart and Cuushe) and “acoustic” instruments (piano, percussion), in addition to the ambiant electronics at the heart of the label’s revered style. This is a highly enjoyable record in four 10-minute movements. A delicate production, trippy yet well-directed. Dreamy yet constructed music.
