Following on from his slow burning self-released cassette "Unweather", "lutra" is the first CD release by smallhaus (AKA South London based guitarist, electronicist, percussionist David Little). It expands his singular sound environment into a full-screen, full-colour and hugely enjoyable collection.
At times this almost feels like a tribute to the classic sounds of 70's ambient - the choral textures, the infinite guitars, the synthesizers, but it's done with a knowing wink and a contemporary layer of grit and dust. But mostly it's an enveloping, immersive wash of precision moulded sound.
