Nelson fan? Budd fan? Essential listening. Fila fan? Maybe a little light on quirky, inventive downtempo flava for those. Still as collaborations go this is top drawer. Harold Budd never seems short of dreamy scatterings of piano note 'droplets', Bill's guitar loops and scales in a hazy middle distance and the Fila gents create some soothing backdrops to keep everything moving like a slow punt under weeping willows on a sultry late afternoon. And then it is over too soon.

Fila Brazillia teams up with the ambient piano of Harold Budd and the New Wave art rock of Bill Nelson on the THREE WHITE ROSES & A BUDD EP. The opening track, "No Shade, No Shadow," has the drifting, sad quality that one would expect of Harold Budd, and as it loops over the length of the track, the other contributors overlay it with ominous electronics. "Adrift Amidst Les Odalisques" has a much dreamier feel to it, like sunlight dappling through leaves, and the Fila boys lay a gentle groove on top. Bill Nelson's guitar comes to the fore on "The Airless Time," like a howl of pain, with Budd's piano following beside. "Blue Locus," the final track, is almost a reflection of the opening track, but one that opens up into sparkles. Beguiling, and a fascination diversion for the Fila boys.
