Resin Pockets is the first album in a decade from long-running Bristol, U.K. indie group Crescent, and their first for Domino sublabel Geographic, which had previously reissued the debut album by related band Movietone. Crescent's principal member remains singer/songwriter Matt Jones, who co-founded the group during the early '90s and is responsible for most of their material.
Resin pockets are bubbles or imperfections in pine wood, which Crescent mainman Matt Jones felt were the perfect analogy for the homespun nature of his first album in 10 years. Made largely outdoors, the record feels crackly, more than a little on the fly, and all the more beautiful for it. Resin Pockets virtually hums with the feeling of wildlife and welcome intrusion.
