vetchinsky settings

Those with memories far more robust than my own, might well recall us mentioning the debut 7 inch by Vetchinsky Settings. A collaboration bringing together members of Gnac, the Montgolfier Brothers and the Orchids, the Vetchinsky ones have come good on their promise of more to come with the arrival of the limited to 250 ‘underneath the stars, still waiting’ full length. From that set, we’ve been much smitten by ‘passenger’, a shadowy romantic draped in a 60’s haunt that’s teased in a deeply attracting noir-ish looping that craftily draws a gathering comparison of Mancini, Barry and Astley types, add to this a subtle baroque grazing that’s beautifully braided and ghosted with an over-arching reflective regret and a sense of withdrawal, a quiet distancing or a letting go, spirits its way to the mysterious fore. If there is a desire or need for references may we suggest and, not for the first time in recent memory, that Beatglider might well be your first port of call.
