“A Western Circular feels both strangely timeless and oddly new – a heavenly collaboration between Arthur Russell and David Axelrod” – MOJO, 4*

“A record in which the listener is led through various sonic twists and turns, never quite sure what lies around the corner. Beautiful stuff.” – Q Magazine, 4*

“The record moves dramatically between genres without feeling mismatched, emphasising Archer’s remarkable musicality and diversity as a composer.” - LOUD & QUIET

Archer took half a decade to make this record – no surprise, then, it makes for such a wonderfully unhurried listenTHE INDEPENDENT, 4*

“This new album by Wilma Archer is his best yet... Classic.” – GILLES PETERSON, BBC/ WORLDWIDE FM
