Hood has always been one of my favourite bands for many reasons: first of all because of their music but also because of the artistic aspirations they put in everything they create trying to give exclusivity to many of the releases they've put out as a band or under many other projects. Many of their releases are unique in artwork creating different covers for all the copies of one single item, with different Polaroids or recycling other records or objects to sustain a new one. In this case, the once Hood member Craig Tattersall and also a member of Remote Viewer puts out a 100 copies only CD inside 100 different old books transformed to hold the CD inside, all of them in diverse ways. But not everything is about the container as the content here is one of the best any Hood member has ever put out outside the main group. What at first sight can look like another generic ambient album is full of organic details, originality, analogue sounds, hiss, nature noises and beautiful armonies. For a moment I imagined it sounds like a slowdown ambient instrumental High Places album could.
