Wee Scottish beard King Creosote aka Kenny Anderson has been a seaside-based purveyor of Scottish indie-folk for quite some time. Rocket D.I.Y was his second album and the first time he'd released a whole new set of songs (rather than raid his extremely large archives). Like a lot of his music its a delight with banjos ukelele, violins and pedal steel fleshing out his spindly fishing songs.

Rocket D.I.Y. by King Creosote

8/10 Clinton 29 November 2006

The first disc I have for review this week is a lovely one by King Creosote called 'Rocket D.I.Y.' Its really the most impressive thing I've heard him/them do. Its lovely quaint Scottish pop music that kind of reminds me of being on holiday in a Scottish coastal resort as evening falls, the lights twinkling in the distance. There's some great banjo playing and melodica too. It's all very homespun but the songs are very strong. I guess the nearest comparisons I can think of are early Badly Drawn Boy and a smidge of a rural Belle and Sebastian here and there. Of course this is part of the Fence collective so if you like their stuff you are going to love this. I think this is way superior than most of that stuff and could elevate King Creosote to James Yorkston like status. On Domino/Fence.
