This is the first solo outing for Gabriel Amor (one half of avant -pop duo Amor/Belhom) and its quite wonderful in its scope. This all instrumental mini-album ranges from ambient French pop to sparse desert moodiness. Last year's collaboration with Calexico(the amazing ABBC project) has obviously rubbed off as this record has a definite spaghetti-western feel...perhaps I should say croissant-western? The songs flow from one to the next as if they were scenes in a movie...indeed Amor calls this the "imaginary movie punctuating my life for the last couple of years". Amor played mostly everything himself and his use of vibes, melodica, trumpets, cellos, and drum loops give the record a dream-like quality. Beautifully played and recorded...my wife likened it to what painting a picture would sound like. Amor leads us on a cinematic journey that is well worth the trip..
