ALBUM REVIEW: Raime - Quarter Turns Over A Living Line

Following on from the singles ‘If Anywhere Was Here We Would Know Where We Are’ and ‘Hennail’, Raime deliver their debut album on Kiran Sande's Blackest Ever Black imprint. Formed from seven industrious ambient compositions, ‘Quarter Turns Over A Living Line' finds the duo, comprised of Joe Andrews and Tom Halstead, trading the electronica-based assembly on their previous output in favour of sparely orchestrated live instrumentation. Whereas those pursuing the pair's output as associates of the emerging “future-jungle” sound may find this desolate opus a touch bleak, seasoned disciples of post-rock miserablists such as Godspeed You Black Emperor and Mogwai should be right at home.
