Hot on the heels of their debut album We Were Not There For The Beginning, We Won't Be There For The End ("a soothingly beautiful collection" AU Mag; "[a] frequency magnificant record" Artrocker; "their hazy shoegaze/experimental hybridity means that they are well worth the effort of a listen" The Line Of Best Fit), Italian electronic post-rock duo Tempelhof release two charmingly epic cuts of majestic loveliness that were actually recorded before the album came out: Leaving Home and Cage. This is released on a 12" slab of vinyl, individually numbered and painted making up one section of an image of rural North-East England (and comes with a custom-made sleeve to boot).

It all gets underway with Leaving Home, all melodic keys punctuating the starting whispers, and then the beats start to kick in and you know it's going to rock bells. Beats chop and change and glide into space, wallowing around yer head, swirling around, building to a classic postrock crescendo. Cage goes for the juggular, fluctuating from skittering drum fractures, to ghostly strings and Borroughs-esque cut-and-paste murmurs; equal parts fractured, soaring, shimmering, golden and booming, fans of The Album Leaf, M83, The American Dollar, Hammock etc. will lap this up.
