6/10 Clinton Staff review, 25 March 2011

Having tuned in out of guilt to the Radcliffe and Maconie show the other night following its Radio 2 cancellation (preposterous), I was reminded of King Creosote's 'You've No Clue Do You' which is a fine slice of pop, I'd forgotten how near the mainstream he'd reached at one point. So I was interested to hear this collaboration with hardest working man in music Jon Hopkins. The result is a very laid back slow burner of a record. Hopkins provides all the music which comprises gentle electronica, Eno inspired sound collages and acoustic guitar plucks. King Creosote's vocals are typical of his genre, odd lyrical twists and turns in his lilting Scottish brogue. Its not that dissimilar to his earlier solo work, I guess, maybe with a more synthetic 'produced' appeal. Songs like 'Running on Fumes' have nice twisting melodies and build slowly but surely, using field recordings to create further atmosphere. The songs are pretty but my main concern whilst writing this review is that I keep forgetting the record is playing. Hopefully given further spins it might reveal more.
