** Deluxe Ed. Attached onto handmade sleeves using thick card stock with textured debossing/rounded tabs outside sleeve construction.

"Elodie is Andrew Chalk and Timo van Luijk. Grisailles is certainly a sea change for this fine group, as it eschews the sometimes melodic, but always wistful Romanticism of their previous work in favor of, sometimes quite dramatic, soundscapes. Or, soundscape, as despite the five titles for tracks on the LP, it feels like a continuous work with returning elements throughout.  Lots of bells, lots of tapes, lots of other things. Despite the lack of any melodic structure, the entire LP flows in a super-organic way, which makes it seem more like a recording of a live event than a slapped-together computer montage. Excellent stuff. I do not know Andrew and Timo well enough to know what they are thinking, but Grisailles seems a bit to me like Elodie saying, "We've heard enough mediocre soundscapes - let us show you how it is done." It is a very engaging listening experience. The cover features a beautiful handmade print by Timo. Expensive. Worth it." Swill Radio
