There Is No Else­where PRAH 7/10 Sparkly elec­tro-folk trio, now with added or­ches­tral shad­ing

Newly signed to mod­ern clas­si­cal la­bel PRAH, avant­folk in­stru­men­tal trio Haiku Salut deepen and widen their elec­tro-pas­toral sound on this mostly sub­lime third al­bum. There are in­escapable tin­gles of vin­tage Eno and Aphex Twin on softly un­du­lat­ing melodic rever­ies like “Oc­cupy” and “Shad­ows”, where glitchtron­ica meets glock­en­spiel in the sun­lit up­lands of the Der­byshire Dales. Adding fresh shades to the trio’s twinkly mu­si­cal rain­bow are two col­lab­o­ra­tions with the Glas­ton­bury Brass en­sem­ble. “Cold To Crack The Stones” is a gleam­ing ta­pes­try of sepia-tinted brass and woozy synth loops, while the un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally punchy “The More And More­ness” could al­most be The Un­thanks remixed by The Chem­i­cal Brothers.
