Clue To Kalo: Mark Mitchell (various instruments, programming).
If Mush's poaching of Mark Mitchell from Adelaide's Surgery label wasn't testament enough to the transatlantic nature of the mild-mannered Australian's music, then Tony Morley's subsequent licensing of his sophomore album to England's highly respected Leaf label further reinforced the point. Indeed, as a purveyor of sleuth rock, Mitchell is comparable to the Badly Drawn one in his deliquescing of a hopeful singing style and jangling guitars into studio-sourced blips and sneezes, but there is much, much more to this album than simple comparison will allow. The earthy grooves, though already both emotive and touching, are injected with a sense of singalong cool -- with Sleepwalk an essential body of work for those who enjoy their electronic music with a little human interference ~ Kingsley Marshall
CMJ (8/4/03, p.29) - "...Mitchell produces gorgeous sounds....pleasing keys, thin drum beats and modest vocals flow against each other..."
Mojo (Publisher) (4/03, p.112) - "...It remains an elegant digital revelrie..."
