Oriole is a supergroup with F-ire associations playing through composed work by guitarist Jonny Phillips with restraint and elegance. Every New Day exudes serenity. Occasionally Rochford will stoke up the heat with some second-line beats but, overall, the music is marked by attention to detail and near classical precision. Nor is it solemn, at times recalling the sense of wander of a Penguin Cafe Orchestra. – Perfect.
