Songs of Green Pheasant - Gyllyng Street

2007; 7 tracks

This soft, beautiful, perfect album by Songs of Green Pheasant, aka Duncan Sumpner, literally makes me feel at home. His style is likened to those of Devendra Banhart, Múm, and Vetiver, among others... There is such a comfort in the gentle melodies here, the whale-like sounds of the ocean and unearthly picturesque scenes full of sights and smells reminiscent of the woods.. His soft, luxurious vocals add to the whispy atmosphere. Breezy, dream-like and enchanting music emanates from Little Hours. Highly recommended. "A Sketch For Maenporth" is definitely a highlighting track for me - it is exactly the kind of ambience I've been looking for in such a long time.
