about

On "4 A.M." the group is conjuring a space of hazy awareness—a tension filled zone between wakefulness and sleep. Sounds are given a chance to exist without the need to build a song, or even a narrative. Instead, a palpable space is created for the listener to exist within. As the wide-stereo fields of soft texture and tone unravel they reveal extremely subtle layers of barely audible sound. Part of a melody might emerge or a rhythm seem to form—all on the absolute edge of awareness.

While the texture of vinyl records seems to pervade the group's sound, other sources seem to present themselves as well—a bowed guitar perhaps or a filtered radio signal buried underneath the surface. It doesn't seem to really matter what the source is, though, as any sound seems to be expertly contained within the field of their sound worlds. Fans of Philip Jeck or Housecraft's Jeffry Astin should definitely take note—Small Things On Sunday are tapping into that same expansive vision in their own unique way. 9/10 -- Charles Franklin (25 August, 2010)
