BBC 6Music (Tom Ravenscroft): “wonderful, wonderful, wonderful record... it's pretty enough to drive you mad"
Sunday Times (Stewart Lee): "admirable levels of consummate artistry, good taste and obvious musical chemistry... feels like the duo just struck up in the corner at the tail end of the perfect party."

Both these guys have such busy schedules, they might not make it over again for some time-so come along and join us!

Named after an obscure Smog song, this new acoustic duo features ultra baritone voiced Simon Kobayashi from smallgang, with Sun Kil Moon-esque guitar workouts from Alex Carter (Armchair Songs). They play incredibly pretty songs with a rare level of skill and complexity.
