[Time and Timing sleeve]

"Time and Timing" (Album, 2003)

Poetra Negra

Spacey, sometimes early Cocteau Twins, sometimes early Cure but essentially chilled, guitar-based electronica from increasingly reliable Greek label Poetra Negra. Light and trippy, brushed drums, liked a slow, relaxed jazzy vibe almost at times. Just how good the writing is becomes apparent when you consider how often tracks are simple or spartan - yet totally captivating. Instrumental throughout and thoroughly rewarding, this is a beautiful digipak film soundtrack for aficionados of quality music. 7/10
