Happy New Year,
If Santa didn’t leave a Wii under your tree and you haven’t been able to make it down to the Devonshire coastline in the last week to plunder the good ship Napoli, then let the decent same sex elves here at Seed Records bring the precious bounty to you.

“arrives with bags of dynamic self-confidence… A surprising, subtle and intoxicating 40 minutes, rather than the mysterious year of the title.”

“Mystery Year is a nicely varied bunch of music… the thirteen tracks guarantee never a dull moment in sight. Uplifting music from a highly diverse supermarket of music. Very pleasant!”
“Calm, contemplative music full of the atmosphere of a winter evening shrinking into the fog… rural beauty and nostalgia, the music breathes the feeling of a marvelous memory form a past time.”
“Mystery Year is an extraordinarily passionate and deep album. Sancho employ a huge variety of sounds, flawlessly mixing electronic with acoustic to produce an awe inspiring flow of music.”
“Sancho are really quite an exciting bunch…to occasionally balance out this abstraction, the group sometimes deliver real pop songs with Pianos, guitars and voices amongst the whirring and clicking, making for an experience that's human sounding, but still strange, deep and enjoyable.”
“It takes a while to grow on you, but slowly but surely the album reveals its charm. There’s certainly a lot more going on production wide than immediately meets the eye. A fine debut.”
“Mystery Year is less songs than meandering drone, post-rock, and melancholic ballad settings, the kind of album where a zither or bouzouki is just as likely to appear as a melodica or glockenspiel.”
"Candid, Softly Psychedelic...Sancho's Music is still young, but yet very personal"
“I love this record!’
