Todd Tobias “Gila Man” Reviewed at AfterGlow

Tobias is also on this album in an excellent manner capable of visual, cinematic and at times making experimental music that the listener allows to dream of the evil world but that same listener through a musical eruption feet back on sets ground. Encased in a beautiful sound. This time, occasionally with wordless vocals of Chloe March. The track ‘Mirage’, referring to Brian Eno, makes me much emotion loose by the melancholic sounds. But lasts too short, only two minutes.
To apply shortly for the whole ‘Gila Man. That half hour was in my opinion may be an hour or more. The beneficent dream would have lasted even longer. An album without a doubt the “Peak Experience” title worthy.

Antonymes Reviewed at The Sunday Experience

“Staying with hidden shoal a little while longer here’s two visitations by Antonymes, well sort of, first up the simply divine ‘towards tragedy and dissolution’ – a slice of impeccable Autumnal classicism cut with such tenderness it emotionally tears and stings...

Antonymes “(For Now We See) Through A Glass Dimly” Reviewed at Headphone Commute

I wouldn’t be surprised to find Hazeldine’s compositions appearing in the credits of some upcoming televised series, as the restrain perceived through his minimalism can easily fit within the foreground (and the background) of a scene. The spotlighted piano tells a wistful tale, but without the darker shadows which often appear within the noir-fi style of the genre. Instead the music is pensive, elegant and grand, striking all the right chords this morning, as the clouds are slowly replaced by the sun.
