The Long Lost - The Long Lost (Ninja Tune)

A high school ballroom dancing couple from Santa Monica, California, Mr and Mrs Darlington present an album of soft electronic mush that is sweet on the ears and as graceful as the said dancing. Mr. Darlington is better known as Daedelus and the pair create beautifully melancholic ditties. Mixing understated percussive elements, earnest guitars and all manner of odd sonic statements, the stage is set for the Missus to present her poetic lyrics and the Mr. to occasionally add his own choice vocals. Album highlights include the thoughtful Sibliance, the magical Past Perfect and a sweet number entitled Colour. This is a lovely album from a cute musical couple.
