Mockingbird, Wish Me Luck
Following on from the release of the ltd. single debut 'Black Lounge'/'3 Dollar Dress' comes the release of the debut self-titled Baltic Fleet album.
"Paul Flemming has delivered a faultless piece of instumental music that captures the spirit of Eno, NEU! all the way through to modern post rock and chamber music. The album swerves from haunting piano pieces ala donnie darko full of melancholy to driving upbeat kraut inspired propulsive grooves. This is getting heavy rotation in rough trade east and is one of our tips for the top in 2008" Rough Trade East
"BUNNYMAN HAS FUN ON THE AUTOBAHN - Sombre, Sigur Ros-like-post-rock, fuzzy bass grooves [and] energising Neu!-style motorik." Uncut
"This is just a great album - nothing that obviously sounds like anyone or anything else. Just a rather beautiful and rather recommended instrumental album." The Organ
Album chosen for Rough Trade's Album Club May 2008!
