“New art edition of this excellent studio album from the Opalio Brothers w/handmade sleeves, paste-on artwork and coloured vinyl: more acid folk than much of the MCIAA corpus, Fragments… features the Opalios on acoustic and electric guitar, F/X, mini keyboard and wordless vocalisations. The beautiful, delicate arpeggios seem to come out of the whole dosed/Laurel Canyon scene, just endlessly delicate, soft tumbling melodies that dance in melancholy reverie and that have the accumulative effect of pure tone hypnosis, existing almost on the periphery of sound and working best when played at a low, almost subliminal level where it has the power to transform and transport the immediate environment. Hard to describe just how oddly affecting this piece is, just very small, subtle repeat-melodic gestures, almost like a more heavenly, candyfloss Fripp & Eno but it is genuinely beautiful and makes for the sort of music you could live in forever. A major MCIAA one-off, comes with a download, very highly recommended!”
