** REPRESS ALERT ** On Francis Harris' second album, the Scissor and Thread label founder continued to grapple with the subjects of memory, loss and profound grief similarly explored on his debut Leland (dedicated to his recently passed father) in 2012. This follow up was in tribute to his mother, who sadly passed the following year - with Harris revisiting deeply personal territory. Danish vocalist Gry Bagoien, trumpeter Greg Paulus (of No Regular Play) and cellist Emil Abramyan returned to provide truly inspiring passages throughout this album. Harris even contributed to the sessions himself, with some guitar and piano work. Across the 10 song opus, Harris works organic and synthetic elements into his compositional framework, relying less on percussive elements to define his moods, whilst solidifying his signature blend of house, modern classical, shoegaze and noise.
