“Driven by a placid intensity, ‘Mangled Bohemians’ drain folk and psychedelic music of its collective connotations, their hushed sound instead relying upon repetition and loose ambience to evoke wary joy and noncommittal sublime. Composing primarily for acoustic guitar, the duo concentrate on yearning drones and folk atmospherics, utilising the guitar’s collateral sounds, string hum and amplifier resonance, to engage with the psychedelic and folk idioms whilst replacing their visceral associations with more subdued references. On the most striking tracks, The Long Way Down’s tender finger-picking or Psychic Mumble’s multi-tracked vocals and sharp harmonics, the pair produce a beautiful inertia; elongated ebbs and flows poised mid-air in a considered ambient psychedelia, quietly forming melodies and searching for ideas.”
