National Ignition

Jeremy H I'm still astounded by the depth and nuance of every sound I hear in the music of Ochre. Notes decay into percussive elements, clicks and groans burst with subtle harmonics; Everywhere you 'look' in the soundscape he creates you will find something interesting, unique, beautiful. Listening to Ochre is like studying a rich and detailed painting. Favorite track: Helicene.

Matt Bentley My favourite opening track of any Ochre album.

rishin This may be Ochre's best. The arrangement on David Elsewhere is mysteriously fluid and the bass on Leaving Arcadia somehow envelops you. I think Jack In perfectly captures the feeling of the album art, and maybe Ochre's music in general: immersive, pastoral, and subliminally alien. As always, thank you Ochre! Favorite track: David Elsewhere.
