Warm, beautiful, playful, dark, original, tweeked, analog, buzzy, melodic. A gilbert play´s third full length album has arrived. A rich soundtrack creeping under your skin aswell as it lays itself down like a long soft rug on the floor. The debut album aswell as the follow-up by a gilbert play got great reviews internationally and in native Sweden. Sweden´s leading morning paper Dagens Nyheter (Nils Hansson) dug them and John Peel played several tracks in his show before he sadly left us. Some of the reviews can be read here "...fake jazz in the proto-Tortoise mold, however they reinvent it by using mostly analog and acoustic instruments to give the purely instrumental kraut-like progressions a glowing tone perfect for the long nights of the winter solstice ... warm, soft tones ... enough change in tempo and mood to create a varied sound and help sustain interest through the album''s 48 minutes" Jim Steed/ rating 9 of 12 Fake jazz "... The music floats around and blurs lines between several different genres. It´s not quite post rock and it´s not quite electronic enjoyable mixture. The music is greatly varied over the course of the album, yet never loses track of a somewhat warm feel that every song definitely a solid little debut from this Swede." Aron Coleman / Almost Cool "...I''ve never really been a fan of Tortoise, but hearing this band makes me realize what they were trying to do ... A Gilbert Play gets it right ... lets you appreciate how good the compositions and arrangements really are ... Very, very nice." Avi Roig/It´s a Trap! "...blend of subtle electronica, ambient, avant pop bliss, krautrock, minimalism and jazz ... conjures an intelligent but yet relaxed sound that wades in the shimmering waters of electronic dreamscapes ... an album that is beautiful, melancholic and full of warm emotions and which despite its various influences comes highly recommended." Mats Gustafsson/The Broken Face
