A striking collaboration took place between Belfi on drums and assorted small percussion and Zuydervelt on guitar and organ. Together they produce the 'pulses' and 'places' mentioned in the title. Organic yet partially improvised, it resembles a kind of sonic geography. The listener is taken away for a journey of mild drones, soft yet outspoken percussion. A strong release.

Certainly one of my go-to albums of this style. Enough warmth, tension, depth, and texture to make this a compelling listen for fans of Sakamoto, Illuha, and Deupree...or people just curious about this genre. Matt Cahill
