Australian/Scots electro-acoustic trio Sensaround return with their unique sound, flirting between melodic jazz ambience, ghostly dub and post-punk experiments as lo-fi rhythms press up against woodwind melodies and Rhodes tones are set awash in free percussion.
Recorded once again at Brick Lane during their last tour in 2016, heart/noise reveals both the group's most intimate and oppressive sounds to date with the influence of This Heat and On-U Sound seeping in.
It's generating a huge response, scoring a total of 93 points in meta-critics. AllMusic described the album as "a record that has complex content but is easily and confidently delivered with lyrics and a combination of jazz throngs and exquisite rhythms," and NME gives it a perfect score of five, describing it as a completely flawless record. A record that doesn't always fall on this year's list of albums of 2018 released by many media outlets. jwsmusic
