After the critical success of last year's self-titled debut album, SOGP, also known by the less-flowery moniker Duncan Sumpner, returns with seven songs recorded over the last four years that tread a less folky path.

Contemplative chorals, biting sitar strings, and echoing piano all form a dreamy, slightly unnerving aural landscape, particularly on Remembering And Forgetting, a song inspired by an article on teen killers.

Xylophone and wind chime also make appearances, while Wolves Against Snowmen flirts with the margins of post-rock, sounding like Mogwai after too many spliffs.

His cover of The Beatles' Dear Prudence is a highlight, snatched from another plane of consciousness. A spaced-out curio.
