UN­TIL THE HUNTER TENDRIL TALES, OUT NOW Most con­sis­tent out­ing yet for Mazzy Star singer’s solo pro­ject.

Over 15 years, Hope San­doval’s col­lab­o­ra­tion with My Bloody Valen­tine drum­mer Colm Ó Cíosóig has been both spo­radic – this is only their third LP – and sometimes a weak echo of her day job with Mazzy Star. Un­til The Hunter holds up well, though, ra­di­at­ing a smoky, un­hur­ried con­fi­dence through­out. The al­ready shared, easy-rolling glide of the Kurt Vile col­lab­o­ra­tion Let Me Get There gives you a good in­di­ca­tion of its fuzzy con­tours. Props, too, for kick­ing the whole thing off with the hushed nine­minute drone of Into The Trees. It’s in­dica­tive of an al­bum that seeks to pull you un­der from the off and that, by and large, suc­ceeds. JAMES OLD­HAM
