Smoke Notes

After whetting the listeners appetite with 2004's brilliant "Panther Valley Country Club" EP, expectations for the impending long player were high. Thankfully, "Beneath The Sleepy Lagoon" doesn't disappoint. It's a slow-burning beauty, with tunes that over time, will burrow their way into your subconscious.
This is more of a pleasurable slow-release listen than a quick aural fix, and there is a lot to take in sound-wise. Every song here is well thought out, cohesively recorded and sonically complete and the overall production is layered and multi-faceted. A credit to Mark Dryburgh's songwriting and studio skills, as well as the tasteful colours textures added by guitarist Achilles Botes. It certainly doesn't hurt that the band has three capable vocalists in Dryburgh, Botes and bassist Ash Harmer; all three utilised to great effect on tracks like "Silver Culture" and "Guided By Lights"
Ghostplane are very much kindered musical spirits to local contemporaries The Phoenix Foundation (who's members pop up to lend a hand on this record), and less close to home - traces of Gomez, The Beta Band ("Lazy Bones"), ("Wash of Gold") and Calexico ("Southern Hill")can be be found in the 'Plane' s songs.
A remarkably strong debut album and a testament to the years these guys (and girl) have played together (before becoming Ghostplane in 2002, they were kicking around the local music scene for years as the oddly named Dana Eclair). Recommended
