 ".....excruciatingly slow, Lancaster builds her songs from layers and loops of single notes allowed to reverberate and rumble into silence. The guitar sound is absolutely fucking gorgeous; a sort of growly tidal wave, which is part thunderstorm and partly the constant, distant rumble of industrial machinery."
