Oh, hey, this is good. Angela Martyr come from Italy and play music that's simultaneously dreamy and quietly intense. The whirring sounds, spacey vibes and robotronic drum patterns immediately bring to mind Jesu, but an equal comparison would be doomed 90s major label signings like Hum, Failure and Handsome: bands who were spacey and ambitious but just about grungey enough to capture the interest of coke-blasted A&R folks. This all leaves 'The November Harvest' in a pretty good place as far as I'm concerned, their captivating, deftly-crafted music creeping carefully along like a shy ghost making its way through a vast grey expanse of mist, drizzle and powder-soft ash.
