Windsor for the Derby Review

by Stephen Howell

Songs don't really exist on this record, instead what Windsor for the Derby creates are more like trance-inducing ambient soundscapes with a liberal use of echo. All of the tracks are varied ever so slightly in style with elements of jazz drumming (untitled tracks four and six), gothic moods (untitled track three), and found sounds (untitled tracks two and five). Some of the songs, such as untitled track seven, become very wearing, though, as two guitar chords repeat for several minutes. Many other songs are dominated by high-pitched synth drones that weave in and out, producing an instant headache for the listener. If Windsor for the Derby would finetune their songwriting, most of these mediocre tracks would be much more pleasing to any ear.
