"Third release finds the duo exploring more melodic and regular songforms than found on their previous releases."

"The third album from the collaboration between singer / lyricist Julie Tippetts and multi-instrumentalist Martin Archer. Serpentine is a single album with a strong narrative arc (a double theme on animals and deceit), with more strongly rhythm-based music - in other words, a song cycle - experimental songs informed by free improvisation and sound research, but songs still, more so than on the previous two albums. This makes Serpentine the duo's most accessible record, and possibly their most accomplished too. In any case, it makes for a highly enjoyable listen, and I strongly recommend you seek it out - Francois Couture, Monsieur Delire
