Dyble’s reen­gage­ment with the mu­sic busi­ness af­ter decades of si­lence con­tin­ues in con­quer­ing style here. Teamed with pro­ducer and Weller bassist Lewis, the ex-Fair­port singer dishes up avant-folk with a thin glaze of psychedelia and gur­gles of elec­tron­ica on songs that draw their charm from the con­trast be­tween Dyble’s crisp enun­ci­a­tion and vaguely ex­per­i­men­tal set­tings. “A Net Of Mem­o­ries” and “Night Of A Thou­sand Hours” are typ­i­cal of their ap­proach, pit­ting folk pu­rity against sam­ples of ra­dio an­nounce­ments, tick­ing clocks and sleepy syn­thetic fuzz. Or “No Words”, a semi-sym­phonic beauty that sounds like a softer, more ac­ces­si­ble Nico.
