This is more of your usual flangy post dubstep post chillwave blast of electro dream pop. Pretty enjoyable really if you like James Blake, Jamie Isaac and that crew. The vocals are very, very falsetto. Is there such a thing as too falsetto? Well as Phil found out when he went to see the Wild Beasts there’s often the ghost of Jimmy Somerville lurking about these days. The first track also has a hideous guitar solo but so did many songs by Steely Dan so I’m not going to let that spoil my enjoyment.
It’s very well produced, dreamy vocal-led atmospheric song-tronica - if you liked the Balam Acab album or in fact a lot of the stuff on Tri-Angle then you are really going to like this. It perhaps suffers perhaps because there are so many records out which sound just like this but taken on its own terms its an impressive start.... and he’s carrying a rather odd looking cat on the cover.
