Having released a fair amount of material in other guises, Tom O.C Wilson makes his first outing under his own name, with an album of jaunty, unpredictable tracks. Though poppy in general, there's a distinct air of strangeness, with shifting time signatures, instrumental hooks and meandering vocals coming at you from all angles.

8/10 Staff review, 08 November 2017

Nothing scares me more than getting my haircut. I'd rather get extreme dental work done whilst abseiling down the Burj Khalifa. Therefore I'm more than impressed by Tom O C Wilson's latest video where he somehow mimes to one of his lurching complicated songs whilst getting his hair chopped. His hair looks great at the end and the song is not bad too. If his songs were anything near normal you might think that the task of miming to them whilst at the barbers might be easy. But they are nowhere near normal, they are extremely complex lurching beasts that often sound like Belle Sebastien playing Trout Mask Replica. 

Nothing is linear -- nothing. Not one thing. But there's none of the harshness that comes with the similar kind of sounds from bands with a similar inability to keep songs to a minimum of ten thousand chords. It's hard work but utterly fascinating -- a record that will appeal to adventurous fans of Field Music who feel that those lads compositions are just not proggy enough. 

A record that is easy to admire but perhaps harder to love. Certainly not one for the dinner party. Like the music of Kiran Leonard this is weird and complex and you spend the whole thing waiting for a moment when it makes some kind of sense but it never does. Tom Wilson is so clever that I'm surprised that the head that he gets cut isn't the size of Swindon but this is unlike anything you'll hear this week, month or possibly year.
