“Circuitry of the Wolf” opens up And The Glass Handed Kites. The interesting thing is, the track flows into the next seamlessly, and the feat continues throughout the album. Yes, Jonas Bjerre, Johan Wohlert, and Silas Utke Graae Jørgensen formatted their 4th album to be a single continuous suite, and the reverb-drenched 55-minute trip, also marked by airy vocals, atmospheric synths, and pulsating bass, is epic, ethereal, and worth making many times over. Cherry picking or skipping through the tracklist won’t do And The Glass Handed Kites justice; it’s best to listen to it from start to end and to enjoy the peaks and valleys of the prog rog/dream pop moments that “Chinaberry Tree,” “The Zookeeper’s Boy,” “Apocalypso,” “White Lips Kissed,” “Saviors of Jazz Ballet,” and other songs offer. This is the 180g repress of the album, limited to 2000 copies worldwide.
