We’ve listened to Glasgow’s Conquering Animal Sound a few times here in the now office and we can’t seem to get past the Bjork references, another go through the headphones though has revealed a few more levels to this record, beyond all the crisp electronica there’s a lot of soul in Anneke Kampman’s voice, this is much more of a pop sound compared to the Mark Bell-produced Bjork albums like ‘Homogenic’ and ‘Vespertine’ even though there are lots of similarities to those records!
There are a few standout tracks like the Imogen Heap-ish ‘Gloss’ and ‘A Noise Remains’ has a little dancefloor vibe to it, other than that, ‘On Floating Bodies’ isn’t really going to blow anyone’s minds but is well produced enough and I’m sure would appeal to fans of the above!

A great album that evokes the spirit and experimentalism of Bjork in places. Layered and looped bleeps and beats meet ethereal vocals, held together by a real pop sensibility and hooks that slowly weld themselves to your brain. The sort of record you stick on and after twenty seconds someone goes "ohhh what's this?!?" A real treasure.
