BirdPen is the brainchild of Mike Bird and Archive’s Dave Pen (see what they did there?) and their third album is a challenging listen. The pair opt for the carefully textured and atmospheric approach achieved by building layers of music in the studio, so this certainly isn’t an album for those craving a quick-fix of the dramatic crescendo, having more in common with Radiohead or Spirit In Eden-era Talk Talk. Everything is gently paced and leaning toward the ambient, but the composition and detail of this music is, at times, astonishing . BirdPen have not delivered an album for the masses here, but for the right ears In The Company Of Imaginary Friends is a truly remarkable work. Surrender to it. Prog Newsletter.
