If you like the previous gusgus releases, you'll like this one too. I kinda miss Hafdis Huld but whoever they brought in to replace her on vocals is good enough - they're not a particularly vocals-driven group, after all. There's some of the "music for stargazing" instrumentals that were all over the last release "gusgus vs. t-world" but it's a lot more dancey than trancey this time round. It's not as good as "Polydistortion" of course but I haven't yet decided if it's better than "This is Normal" - it's right up there with it. I'd like to see "Unnecessary" released as a single, but I don't know if Moonshine plans on promoting the disc or not...?
Okay, I just checked...looks like "Dance You Down" is getting a limited release next week in the UK, while "Desire" is Moonshine's first choice
Well that sounds like a pretty good review. I will have to find someplace where you can listen to the tracks before you buy the disc, though. On mymusic.com you can listen to 30 second snippets, but that doesn't seem to be enough. So, what you're saying is that it's good, but not their best? Hmmmmm.... maybe, then.
He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.
I wish I could remember where you could hear the tracks, 'cause I KNOW I heard SOME of them well before the album came out. It was probably some Icelandic site I'll never find again.
One thing I forgot to mention is if you remember back on the ezboard when I gave out a link to an hourlong mix they did, there are a LOT of times listening to the new CD when I thought "man, I heard this snippet in that mix!" which was pretty cool.
Now I don't think they'll *ever* beat "Polydistortion" but I'm saying if you're into the group you'll probably be glad you bought this one.
Hello. I am back home after my week in Toronto. I went to many shows, and while I took many notes (usually on my iPad before bed), I somehow found that doing "anything else" was preferable to writing reviews while I was there.
