Landscapes and travel are very much to the fore on this album. Where The Lowland Hundred’s previous effort concentrated on ‘inner landscapes’ (people’s state of mind and where they were at physically, during a particular time in their lives), Adit is very much about looking forward and moving on.
The songs all sound very well lived-in but have an air of rootlessness hanging over them. These are songs we can all relate to, about being stuck in a particular situation which we like but are simultaeneously very keen, if not desperate, to get out of, before it swallows us.
It is like seeing a panoramic world view through a keyhole. These guys give us both a trip inside their heads, but also a brand new way of seeing the wider world out there. This is, then, a slow album, but one which rewards your patience in spades ultimately.
