Apparently this lad has been sending the blogosphere into a frenzy for a while. Once again I actually fail to hear how? I mean, I bloody hate shit like Washed Out, never a more appropriate name in showbusiness though looking at his popularity I am obviously clueless! YL is actually called Trevor though. How do people called Trevor actually make it past the first gate in this business? His skippy home-made beats are disarmingly simple, almost to the point of being retarded, the melodies minimal & twinkly and his vocals either a brittle falsetto or a muffled haze. That's all you slags want innit, someone young & tender to make plodding anthems? Well this record is full of plodding anthems which are somehow rescued from the pit of hopelessness by their sweet lo-fi charm & child-like naivete. I think it's the easy-going dreamy nature of these tunes that will ensure their popularity. I like the first half of '17' the best, where it's just built from his curious wonky angel's voice & some sort of appealing atmosphere instead of his annoying drippy dull-wave kindergarten music that is only plausible due to the murky production techniques. If these songs were recorded in a full studio there'd be naught there I tell thee. I'm sorry, I'm feeling a little cruel today but only because I've got a Nightingales tour EP waiting in the wings and this is holding me up......
