Marconi Union claim that 'Distance' revolves around city life and travel. Appropriately, listening to this record acts an antidote to commuter stress taking its cues from Labradford. Indeed, in terms of adding layers of melancholy and longing to subtle electronica, this Mancunian duo have probably produced the best record of its type since that Virginian band's 'Fixed::Context'. Every pluck of the bass and organ note is carefully considered and on a very well-balanced album, 'Sleepless' and 'Buildings And People' stand out for their rich, supremely sad melodies. Remember to take this record along for your next night-time journey.
