Another exciting compilation from those wonderful aural pioneers of IDMf, This is Good Tea rolls through a compelling array of carefully sculpted, perfectly crafted masterpieces. Often tied together by glitched beats, unique rhythms, haunting echoes and beautiful melodies, the netlabel again proves it can offer a release that boasts both variation and coherency, no song out of place despite the diversity of the palette.
One thing that seems to run across all the songs on this compilation is the dreamlike nature of them. In terms of composition, sound design and on a whole a brilliant example of quality musicianship this whole album evokes all sorts of emotion and at times conjures up the most interesting of imagery in the listener’s mind.
Prepare yourself for a treat. This really is exceptionally good tea.
