Port-Royal - Flares

A swift turnaround sees Port-Royal's Flares arrive the day after I PayPal it. Record label service can't be faulted but what of the record?

Well I was expecting a minimalist, Arctic techno sound but while there is some of that sound we are more in the Piano Magic/Godspeed/Explosions in the Sky territory and that's no bad thing.

My immediate reaction is that I like it and, goddamn it, Amazon is just too smart in its recommendations. I like label mate Strafrænn Hákon and it correctly put two and two together to make the connection. Just to spite the machine I bought it direct.
