Tracklist: Ralegh Long - Winter From Here On In

When we briefly touched upon Long towards the end of last year we noted a certain Robyn Hitchcock influence to his writing, placing the enigmatic into the classically melodic. Even though he's taken to piano on this track it seems more apparent while devoid of polish here, the swells of rhythm section and dischords passing by as something not entirely conciliatory builds up. The spectre of Darren Hayman is present too, and maybe this is just us but we think there's also something of the culter-than-mere-cult 90s outfit Animals That Swim.

Oh, and he's also covered the much discussed Brother in the style of French electronica. Obviously.
