about

Consisting of two names that will be familiar to many Hibernate fans, The Sly & Unseen are a duo of Katie English (aka Isnaj Dui) and Hibernate boss Jonathan Lees. Following on from two previous EPs, the duo have now turned their hand to a full length album, producing a collection of warmly immersive tunes that take on Russian folk songs, Balinese gamelan and glitchy rhythms alongside harmonium drones and gentle melodies.

All Similarities and Technical Difficulties End Here and its artwork reference the duo’s desire to get ‘back to basics’ and use solely acoustic instrumentation combined with minimal electronic input. The pieces maintain a feeling of spontaneity, being written largely in the studio and recording techniques kept as true to a live performance as possible.

The album is accompanied by a track by track remix CD including a live version and reworkings by acts including Isan, Memory Drawings, Isnaj Dui, Wil Bolton, BLK w/Bear, Leigh Toro, The Laborer, Danny Clay and Spheruleus.
