Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 November 2018

Every time I hear 'reggae vibes' I just hear David Brent but the chilled out grooves of opener This Heat actually work and I don't know why. Perhaps it's the unusual vocal stylings of this Aussie youngster or the guitar break that somewhat reminds me of Mac DeMarco but whatever it's a great and unique start to the LP.  

Gregor has that Mac De Marco guitar sound down pat and I think that's a large part of why I'm enjoying this. It gives the music a hazy, shaded feel that meshes perfectly with the primitive drum machines and rubbery bass that often make this sound like a lost 1982 recording. The press release mentions Arthur Russell and I can see where it is coming from. It's eccentric home recorded stuff that often alarms with its instrumental decisions such as 80s new jack synths on I Look Devastated but it mostly falls into place when the semi spoken vocals appear. 

Like a lot of albums in 2018 it's of varying quality  - at times it all seems rather jokey then he throws something like Revise Me at you  - a gorgeous surfy instrumental. It's kind of like an update on bands like the Cannanes and Crabstick with it's hazy, lazy narrative  - great songs are here  - if you like Aussie lo-fi pop you'll like it  - well at least half of it. It's a shame that some of it detracts from really superb tracks like Wish You Saw which is almnost worth the admission price alone. You;ll not know what you are missing if you don't sift through but it's worth the effort for the odd gem.
