ABOUT THIS ITEM
Gorgeous and downbeat, giddy with reverie, longing and loss. Led by Inigo's guitar, banjo, ukelele or harmonium; with a muted brass‐band sound. Recorded by James Blackshaw's engineer; mastered by Rashad.
'The new Iñigo Ugarteburu album is my favourite thing about today' (Tom Ravenscroft, BBC Radio 6 Music).
'Loving Iñigo Ugarteburu’s Back and Forth. Sounds like modern colliery music if they had stayed open and pop had never surfaced’ (Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6 Music).
‘The craftsmanship overflows in several emotional compositions that are like ingenious toy mechanisms, of toy pop‐folk, with recurring chords, winds that gently cradle us and cadences that feed a constant feeling of epiphany on every new listen. Delicate, subtle, atmospheric, picturesque, penetrating, beautiful, autumnal, weightless, stealthful, warm, exciting... all valid enough, these terms are insufficient to describe the beauty of an album impregnated by an extraordinarily sincere sound in each of its eight piecesʼ (Quim Casas).
