Scotland's indie-space rock darlings have amassed a cult like following and, with this, it is apparent why. H2Z's finally lives up to the "Hi-Fidelity" soundtrack hype with their strongest LP to date. Combine organ drenched melodies, electronically processed drums, misty guitars and the slow echo groove of mystical lyrics- all delivered with a quirky breeziness. Think (introducing..) The Asteroid #4, Dukes of Statosphere meets Syd Barrett's Floyd. Stripped down and lean, this is one of the year's best so far.
