AllMusic Review by

Greg Davis' debut for New York's Carpark blends his fascination with pastoral folk guitar and digital sound processing. Though the mixture certainly doesn't sound especially amenable, Davis' clear affinity for both results in some excellent music. "Eleven Eight" balances a wandering, Tortoise-style guitar journey with a stark, effects-heavy drum machine; "Nicholas" is especially gorgeous, balancing the gurgling of various acoustic instruments with manipulated samples. Best of all: he closes with the nine-minute, nearly effects free "Arbor."
