Serna-Grey unexpectedly during christmastime 2019 I ended up having to put down my beloved dog Tara. the compulsory positivity around surrounding me at the time ended up just making everything worse, and while at home I stumbled across this album and found immense comfort in music that was as somber, mixed up, and complicated as I needed then. my heart is still broken, and I'm glad I found this record that perfectly encapsulates how conflicted everything felt during that time. Favorite track: Breathing Slow ft. Grace Robinson.

Katarzyna Wiktorski The perfect soundtrack to accompany this introspective time of the year. Reflective, emotional and restorative.

crudolf Hi

I just woke up from a Saturday snooze to the sounds of an amazingly enhanced Precious Energy on Gilles Peterson's show.

Wow!

It's the 14th, can you release it today, I want to hear it again!

Thanks to you Barney and thanks to Gilles...

"A luminous tonic for Christmas saccharine and materialism"
- Billboard

"Finally , some Christmas music that doesn't suck"
-The Statesman

"Like a watercolour unfolding in slow motion. Out of vast swathes of emptiness they would suddenly paint the same particles of air at the same moment so that what was already crystalline and mesmeric was also endlessly surprising".
