Following the dense and diverse mixes of 'The Awkwardness ep' (remixes by: Pulseprogramming, I-sound, Calla and W.F.T.D. themselves), 'The Emotional Rescue LP' (released in June of 2002) resides in a skeletal and delicate spaciousness, one that is lush, orchestrated, vibrant and sure to excite their many dedicated fans, while welcoming a host of new listeners dismayed by the current lack of energy in contemporary guitar-based songwriting. On Windsor's 4th full length, the group seem to have left their dark shadows in the past, instead pursuing a similar path to the elegant D. Matz/M. Gira (The Swans/Young God records) collaborative effort. The outcome is a dramatically different approach in songwriting, setting aside their rythmic instrumental tendencies for a more vocal oriented approach to traditional folk and pop songs. 'Emotional Rescue' begins as a love song like a movie sunrise, warm but haunting. 'Now I Know the Sea' encourages connections with its nature metaphors, continuing to pacify with its demeanor, shifting the context with a sharper beat and melody that sets off the title track. 'Fall of '68' retracts again with a personal reflection, vocals riding above the elegant textures of acoustic guitar, piano and tenor saxophone. With a tension like early Wedding Present or Bedhead, Windsor takes a leap into post-punk on 'Awkwardness', maybe their most upbeat song ever, and certainly the climax of the record, before reengaging the airy folk voyage in 'Another Rescue'.

Even the packaging evokes a theme light and healing, with a white sky above the NYC skyline.lp on white vinyl and limited to 1000. cd in digipak.
