Requiem for an Open Return by Missing Organs
"Wonderful bedroom experimentalism with varieties of guitars, keys and percussives blended in ways that are sometimes cacophonous, sometimes very sweet, and rarely predictable. I've become used to such hermetic instrumental exercises being rather monochromatic, but Bath's work here is varied as hell and highly engaging as an avant pop readymade." - Byron Coley for The Wire "...aside from the brilliant song titles and artwork, the main thing recommending this record is its somewhat unexpected compositional approach. There’s a big 70s krautrock influence here, judging from the komische electronics of ‘Lowstill’ and gently squalling guitar of ‘Rotting Apricot’, but this is
an unsettling record that flits adeptly between varied instrumental approaches. Ultimately, Bath’s approach makes for a listenable and thought provoking record." - Benjamin Bland for Drowned in Sound "The genuflections are there. Faust, Tim Hecker's Ravedeath, 1972 and the Kranky roster all join Undiscovered's solemn march from room to room of an abandoned, cavernous orchestra. But the album best distances itself from these artists - and even its own songs - when there's a mixture of analogue and digital [...] When it holds on a comforting bed of tones and tosses them with more nauseous elements, the tension is something true, a soundtrack for any one of our billion internal battles." - Jordan Darville for Chart Attack
