[Will "Quantic"] Holland’s gentle production layers polyrhythms, bowed strings and plucked melody, always providing ample space for [Nidia] Góngora’s voice to soar atop the musical foundations without being weighed down by their intricacies. It is a challenging interplay, but one the pair both pull off with effortless aplomb, giving these tales of lost souls at sea, drunken revelry and forlorn romances an ornamental polish without losing their sense of tradition and rooted authenticity.
