In Ireland there's been as much recent activity in the electronica scene as there has been in the more traditional folk music scene. So it makes perfect sense that the Irish label Elusive Recordings blur the lines a little by mixing the two together. Halfset - who consist of Stephen Shannon and Jeff Martin - follow a similar path to labelmate Jimmy Behan's last album. Fans of "folktronica" artists Minotaur Shock and Fourtet will apreciate the warmth and melody of 'I Can' and 'Solar' as well as the more mournful 'Lonesome' whereas 'Riversong' - one of a few tracks to use vocals - is a close relation to the early work of Air. Throughout, Shannon and Martin throw in an unexpected array of instruments, ranging from old analog synths to banjo, glockenspiel and jazz trumpet adding a reminder - as if it were needed - that Halfset emphasise the human aspect to their recording; eschewing the electronica-only approach. Yet for all the pleasantness that goes on before it, there is no track quite as special as the last one, 'Laptop Dancer', which conjures up images of wintry scenes and Disney musicals whilst still sounding remarkably modern. Halfset seem fully-formed on this evidence.
