"A shimmering modern psychedelia" Jon Savage - Mojo

"Spigel`s voice remains amongst the most haunting in modern rock" Dave Thompson - Alternative Press Out Now

Oracle : Tree

Track Listing
01Esther II The second release from the label is the first from Oracle. Oracle are SAMY BIRNBACH, MALKA SPIGEL (Minimal Compact) and COLIN NEWMAN (Wire) and have been working towards this project's completion since 1989. Like many Swim~ projects Oracle freely mix different often "rival" approaches towards music on their "genre busting" debut. Some pieces would find favour on the "intellectual dancefloor" others would alienate even the most hardened "Ballericist". Some pieces can charm with their melodic wistfulness others are best appreciated with big boots on! Yet all in all the aim is for a beauty beyond stereotypical forms, a multi-dimensional work which can make as much sense now as it can in 5 or 10 years time
