Going to the gig in Edinburgh on Friday . Can't wait - something to look forward in January is a rarity !
To that end i'm listening to the lightsleeper album on loop trying to get into it . It's not really working . Don't get me wrong, it sounds good, but apart from a few hooks/ grooves here and there , theres nothing i feel of substance I can "Grab" on to. It's not classic Neil songriting for me in the traditional sense of Distant Sun or Sinner. In the same vein as Pajama club/Dizzy Heights/out of silence , I'd describe it as "vibey". Thats fair enough, but after 4 albums worth , I'm kind of ready for a new direction.
Oh for a "two minutes of silence " or a "Saturday Sun " or an "Instinct" ...
BTW The last track "We Know What It means " sounds very reminiscent of "Recluse" from Dizzy Heights melodically.
