Labradford's debut LP was case in point supporting my own personal love for bands so diverse from Orchestral Maneouvers in the Dark to the Dead C. And when I think of this the LP, the standout of for me will always be "Soft Return." Could have easily been recorded in England circa 1980 by OMD. Steel guitar sounding like John Fahey backing Jack Nittchze on "Marie." Classic, and possibly the band's only song you will find yourself singing along to. "C. of People" with spoken word is erie and something different entirely tuning the previous guitar line to something much darker. The album shows all sorts of influences: the aforementioned OMD, Kraftwerek, "Procession/Cries & Wispers" early New Order and of course NZ noise. They really became their own with each later release, but this one really set a lot of folks on a totally different course. Reissued this month I believe for the label's 20th anniversary. Track 12 appends the A-side of the first single. An epic listen.
