Following the brusque, yet bodacious 'Hard Islands' EP of 2009, Nathan Fake reflects a more nostalgic theme with the wistfully titled, 'Steam Days'. Working it's way through various rhythmic and melodic moods, 'Steam Days' employs frenetic, Aphex-like composition on tracks such as 'Glow Hole', 'World of Spectrum' and the opening, 'Paean'. Casual, loosened drum sequences reveal "one-take, live home recordings" on the likes of the previous single release 'Iceni Strings' and the dark, brooding kick of 'Neketo' takes us back to the familiar realms of 'Hard Islands'; closing with the triumphant coda of ' Warble Epics'. An essential, accomplished addition to Mr Fake's already brilliant discography.
