More Info

Re-release of DS78 incl. one extra track. One of Mirror's finest works recorded by Andrew Chalk, Christoph Heemann and Jim O'Rourke between May 2002 - January 2005. The music on 'Still Valley' might seem calm on the surface but something mysterious is going on underneath. Edition of 1000 copies in dye-cut cover similar to the LP version. [label info]

...schwelgen in ewigen Momentaufnahmen, die das Gefhl eines ungemein zrtlichen Fingers aufm Auge zurcklassen. Mirror zerfleischen dabei alle Konzepte einer Temporalitt, verlassen sich auf ihre flchtigen Flchen von nirgendwo und wandeln im Raum wie deine verblasste Liebe zu Herbstbeginn. Zeit ist vergessen und Erinnerung findet whrend 'Still Valley' etwas anders statt als blich, sie greift tief ins Nie-Gedachte und friert alle Referenz zum Jetzt rigoros ein. Meisterhaft. [Ed Benndorf]

...Mirror is here on the most calm moment, even when they are a trio here (core members Christoph Heeman and Andrew Chalk helped out by Jim O'Rourke), in a trio of tracks (one more than the original vinyl) that are utterly relaxing. Soft organ tones paint the living room in a deep warm color, slowly swirling and changing shape. While some of the other Mirror works are a bit more darker and dronier, this is their most relaxing piece of work. Utter minimalist and probably nerve racking to the uninitiated, but I think this is a stunning beauty. But as a devotee of Mirror (he hastened to admit), things can't go wrong anyway.
