Review of Cube Cinema gig 3.9.05 from Venue magazine:

Mole Harness shows seem to come few and far between these days, so when given the chance one should cherish them with all the warmth of the sounds that James Brewster coaxes from his simple guitar/sampler set-up. Of the gaggle of fledging electronic auteurs
to have emerged in Bristol post-2000 Brewster has arguably blossomed best, retaining a coherency of direction and clarity of ideas that others have found elusive. Gone, it seems are the stuttering Detroit rhythms of his earlier efforts, washed away by an ever keener ear for gently manipulated sonic texture but with the pensive, autumnal guitar still intact (by the time Mole Harness plays next that will probably read ‘glacial’).
