Resin Pockets is the first album from Crescent in ten years. If itís been a long while since Little Waves, the intimate treasure they released in 2007, thatís because much like peers Movietone and flying saucer attack, Crescent move in slow motion, but with sure steps, only doing things when they feel right and true. You can hear this in the confidence that underpins the nine songs written by Crescent leader Matt Jones for Resin Pockets, an album that nestles beautifully into a long history of visionary outsider English pop craft, in the same vein as the isleís solitary voices, all singing against the grain Ė the playfulness of Kevin Ayers; the grace of Vashti Bunyan; the rhapsody of Robert Wyatt; the melancholy of Epic Soundtracks; the revelations of Bill Fay. Itís an album of joyous melody and evocative poetry, of community and intimacy.
