Deptford Goth gets right down to it with a record called 'Songs', which we assume has some songs on it. The follow-up to the slow, smooth jams of 'Life After Defo', this record continues where he left off, blending together all the most patiently paced genres into one sultry combo: there's elements of R&B, as well as soul, tempered with meditative electronic sounds.

6/10 Laurie 29 October 2014

Here we have the 2nd album from London's Deptford Goth, the tantalizingly-titled Songs. This is problematic because I much prefer instrumentals, but here goes anyway. These are indeed songs, along the emotional electronic ballad vein featuring the crooning voice of one-man-band Daniel Woolhouse asking questions like “Where can I go?” and “Why does my heart hurt?” (artistic license permitting on the latter).

If you’ve heard James Blake’s brand of soulful productions then you’ll be familiar with the ‘Goth, telling cute stories about pivotal romantic moments and life choices. Despite the inclusion of a minimal interpretation of R&B-inspired drum beats, Woolhouse’s sound is a little too safe, with the whole record pretty much never deviating from the sound of relief and past heartbreak. Maybe my loveliness quota for the day has already been filled by 1pm, but this stuff just brings to mind artists like London Grammar who hit on slightly modernised but stale pop to please the LDN crowds. Instrumentally, you have pianos, a gentle synth swell, the beats and his smooth voice, without much deviation.

Still, the sound that he makes sure is nice, and could definitely work on a chill Sunday when the rest of the week has been filled with horrible, difficult noise music.
