"Electro-acoustic hocus pocus and melancholic, digitally disrupted chamber-folk miniatures from the trio of Kevin Cormack, Matthew Hunt and Mathew Fowler... like a Witchseason production hijacked by Position Normal. Fowler and Cormack are behind some of our favourite underground sides of recent times, all released, like Gras H'utsi, through their own Spillage Fete private press. As with their duo project Jam Money, and Cormack's solo work as Harry Deerness, Bons is driven by a collagistic, ambient pop impulse which can be traced back through early 2000s British post-rock (Disco Inferno, Pram) to the 80s DIY pastoralia of Flaming Tunes, Leven Signs et al. Fragments of rootsy, arcadian instrumentation - acoustic guitar, woodwind, violin, muted horn - sutured together with eerie synth sustains, hypnotic hand-drums, and a panoply of richly evocative, often disquieting samples (from the sound of jammed computer keys to lovelorn, Kevin Ayers-ish vocal refrains). Carriers of secret knowledge."- Low Company
Short and sweet, no wasted moments, subtle guitar lines make it easy to miss how inventive they are. I actually appreciate the live to tape recordings including whatever is going on in the background; it's not obtrusive. And some electronic dabbling. An intimate album fans of bedroom folk, Vashti Bunyan, etc will appreciate and love more with repeated listens. Anthony Childs
