These guys have been producing minimal lo-fi stuff for a couple of years now, but they have only just issued their first full album, on NightTimeStories. They describe their sound as 'something you might hear on a Tarantino soundtrack', but don't let that put you off. To my ears, there's a touch of the Cowboy Junkies about them; I can also hear echoes of the stuff Adam has done with Lunar Dunes.

This is the single off the album, but it's unusual in that they don't usually have vocals:

This is the first thing I heard by them, which is just lovely:

The Universe Smiles Upon You (2015) is on Spotify. Sounds great, agreed Lunar Dunes-ish, so pretty special stuff. Youtube seems to glean some similarities with Bonobo via their sequencing algorithm. Thanks for the heads-up/ tip-off Rob, good listening

There's definitely a Bonobo connection Chris: they toured with Bonobo, and that first tune of theirs that I heard, 'A Calf Born In Winter', appeared on Bonobo's LateNightTales compilation (which I highly recommend).
