Excerpt: “Cheekbone is another artist from the excellent Hidden Shoal Recordings, a label rapidly growing a reputation for its download-only electronica acts…  Although Yesterday can hardly be described as formulaic, most of the seven tracks here follow a similar pattern, usually consisting of one central melody, which is slowly engulfed in chattering digitised noise before the noise subsides again. It’s like a journey though space but on ‘Reef’ it’s down a safe, fascinating route rather than a macabre, mysterious one… the EP reaches an impressive peak with the elegant ‘Far’ as one central, chilly melody expands into several layers, each one of them enticing as the other. HSR have produced another winner.”
