CRITIC REVIEWS

Transforming states and changing perspectives are once again the order of the day. Modern Kosmology marks another triumphant evolution.

GIGsoup

On ‘Modern Kosmology’, its author has marshalled her diverse influences into a discreet whirl of parts where every feature feels considered and necessary: a unique, idiosyncratic sound that’s marked by a myriad magic moments.

Loud and Quiet

Songs melt into one another, merging from breathless prog grooves to aching balladry and back again. Weaver is offering something deeper than nostalgic noodling.

The Guardian
It’s an album that demonstrates Weaver’s rare talent for a largely forgotten skill of the first psychedelic era.

The Independent

With Modern Kosmology, long-time Manchester folktronic siren Jane Weaver has made her most completely realised album yet, albeit by dispensing with folk music almost entirely, in favour of more forceful Krautrock and psychedelic influences.

AllMusic

The tempos may change, the mood may shift a bit here and there, the arrangement may go from dense to sparse, but through it all Weaver conducts the sound like a magician in full command of her powers.

There is real creative bravery at work here, often manifested in a less-is-more sensibility that pays real dividends.
80
PopMatters
It is an achievement of synthesis, cohesion, and craft.

03. Modern Kosmology (Title Track) – 8
04. Slow Motion - 8 - Part of a soundtrack to an eighties’ video game or movie. Nice.
