With a sound that recalls the dream-like drifts of Vanishing Twin, Stereolab, & Broadcast, Frances conjures a brilliantly hazy yet focused work that is damn near impossible not to get lost within. The songs traverse and inhabit this indeterminate landscape: the beginnings of love, moments of loss, discovery, fragility and strength, all intermingle and interact. ‘Land of No Junction’ is shot through with a sense of mystery – an ambiguity and disorientation that illuminates with smokey luminescence. yet, through the haze, everything comes down to what, where and who you are.

Derry says: “basin rock continue their 100% record of only releasing brilliant records & Aoife Nessa Frances has put out an album that fits right next to Julie Byrne & Nadia Reid at the pinnacle of current classic song writing. She didn’t seem to get as much attention as Aldous Harding or Cate LeBon, but her talent is at that level and this album rivals anything either has done. These psychedelic tinged folk songs may require several listens before they hit home, but with little but time on my hands I was happy to let it happen. This could be the low key sleeper album of the year.
