Guillemots:: From the Cliffs (Album Review)
FROM THE CLIFFS is the ambitious debut EP from motley British quartet Guillemots. Blending catchy pop tunes with audio-verite realism, the band achieves that rare balance of songwriting craft and odd, yet thoroughly charming experimentation. Fyfe Dangerfield’s endearingly honest, whisper-to-a-wail vocal performance provides a perfect foil for the music. Jauntily skipping from lounge jazz one minute, to breezy 1960s pop the next, Guillemots have penned a Technicolor dream of a record. This is an iPod worthy CD. Meaning that I actually want to listen to this little gem all the time.. Good stuff.. REALLY good stuff. I expect great things from this little band real soon.. you have been warned!!
RIYL: Beck, Flaming Lips, Coldplay, Super Furry Animals, Badly Drawn Boy, Travis.
