Lord Cry Cry. Heavy brilliance., 15 Nov 2011
Many have tried to combine electronic music and blues and all fail in my opinion, except for Lord Cry Cry.
Remember life before the smoking ban? How life had a heady, hazier fug of hidden depths and musky abandon? Lord Cry Cry's debut album throws you into a dreamy what-if world - where the beatnik decadence of the Left Bank is thrown forward to an alternative present, where the eternal, nicotine-hued avant garde exploration has found its way onto the hard drive; where jazz, blues and classic film soundtracks have found common ground with dubstep and electronica. This is the Mississippi Delta relocated to Silicon Valley. This is Tom Waits for the Ableton generation. This is Lord Cry Cry, his debut album, released on Generation Bass on 21st November 2011.
Wildly adventurous, evocative and dream-like, Lord Cry Cry brings a whole world of experience to this album - a genre-gliding musician and film-score composer trained in the psychology of music and music composition, his work is able to use music and rhythm to affect emotion, and over its ten tracks, Lord Cry Cry blends everything from soul to ambient via dubstep and jazz, as much in line with 60s library music as the playful noodlings of Money Mark.
