What the media have to say...
'Cook Cut Damage Destroy'
"If I only get to recommend three releases this year, this is certainly one that your collection is in dire need of, from start to finish this album is sheer beauty."
"If possible, almost as beautiful as their original Small Craft Rough Sea LP."
"CD of the week"
"One of them must have electronica albums of the year."
(Australian Music Online)
"These interpretations continue the band's quest for beautiful music without detracting from their signature sound."
(4 Star review, SMH)
"Re-mixes can be seriously risky affairs but Cook Cut Damage Destroy has all the qualities of the original it is crafted from. A standout release of 2003."
"Yet another gem from the folks at Silent Recordings."
'Small Craft Rough Sea'
“A genuinely satisfying sonic experience”
“Pick of the Week – essentially a fabulous album”
“Our pick for Australian album of the year”
"Prop brilliantly blur the boundaries between jazz, rock and electronics. Maybe this is what the experts call post-rock. Original Stuff!"
(4 star review, Rolling Stone Magazine)
"With hypnotic soundscapes drifting towards Tortoise, less is more when you have Props' subtlety."
“A compelling musical journey through a variety of instrumental soundscapes”
“The craftiness of each undulating composition encourages a new appreciation”
“Savour each unexpected turn, ear bending chordal shift & adept musicianship”
“The Hypnotic chiming of vibraphone and marimba seem to suggest there are no limits; their resonating ambience echoing out sound waves that reflect the music’s latitude”
“The perfect accompaniment to a space travel documentary”
Paris Pompour – Club
“ Prop’s ethos is to take heartbreakingly simple arrangements and gently build them into an orchestra of dreams”
“ Prop’s music is slippery and difficult to pigeonhole… but so what? It’s an aural feast”
“They’re mesmerising…their skill in controlling the reigns on suspense are most intriguing”
“ Fluid and driven with unusually timed oceanic swells and taunting threatened disintegrations”
Sydney Morning Herald
