With their Desertesque track currently soundtracking the British government’s Preparing For Emergencies infomercial, State River Widening are doing their bit to calm the nation.

State River Widening, Cottonhead. Many of the pieces on this third album (recorded, appropriately, at Keep Calm studios) are based around simple acoustic guitar patterns, before taking off in a shimmer of marimba, muted brass, distant rumbles of keyboards or violin. There's barely anything here you could call "rock", though it sounds as if the trio, and collaborators Pam Ribbeck and Howard Monk, have been swotting up on their minimalists.
