Album Review

Released just under a year after their brilliant Museum of Imaginary Animals, Pram's Somniloquy EP features remixes from that album by likeminded artists such as Plone and Andy Votel, as well as three new songs. Beginning with one of Museum's finest tracks, "Mother of Pearl," Somniloquy expands on the otherworldly, submerged feel of Pram's recent work.
