about

BIRKWIN JERSEY is an aural specter summoned from slumberlust and taking form as the weaving folktronic collage-pop fabricated by Brighton producer Graeme Coop. The album fleshes out his mind and spirit in an otherworldly mix sprinkled with enough anodyne to soothe your inner incubus.

"A part of me wonders if his music sounds connects so instantly and is so unequivocally human partly because of the “make-and-do approach” he takes. Weaving together familiar sounds and voices with the music that’s inside his head. If his music is any depiction of how he sees the world, I’ll take what Birkwin Jersey is having." – Smoke Don't Smoke + Portals

"Like its title, this tape sounds like it was made in nature, weathered by journeys and roads both traveled and untraveled. It’s both explorative and familiar, and Coop keeps it interesting all the way through." – Myspace

"The album is awash with small percussive touches made from everyday objects, which we can only imagine, must have been painstakingly woven into the delicate beats that cover the record. This amount of nurturing absolutely shrines through though, giving the whole album a beautifully organic sound." – Neighborhood Tapes

"Pleasing ambient pop...a rather lovely surprise indeed." – Dummy Mag

"Lord, what a sweet, out-of-nowhere track...there’s a clear comfort between [Graeme and Vienna], found in the nonchalance in Vienna’s weathered talk-sing, like she’s recording from an old couch next to an old friend to whom she’s got nothing to prove." – The FADER on “We Don't Go To Dances”

* * *

"[Vienna's] vocals are seamless, half-spoken, half-sung like they're being led by a religious text. She bursts into a sullen chorus, all while Coop's soft, ever-evolving backdrop continues to develop. Graeme's sound has stayed rooted to humanistic electronica, but this latest track shows just how far his craft's developed in just under two years." – This Is Fake DIY on “We Don't Go To Dances”
