Great fun! excentric beauty,
This review is from: Peakahokahoo (Audio CD)
If you want something a bit different - look no further! I wasn't really sure what to expect when I bought it, I was even less sure what to think when I first listened to it, but after a couple of listens I was soon bopping along, cheesy keyboard basslines and all. My favourite track is probably K-I-S-S-I-N-G, which is a rather different track compared to the rest of the album- haunting vocals, somehow echoing like a hollow children's nursery rhyme, overtop the beautiful precision of classical violins. For lack of anything else close to compare it to, I'd say it sounds a bit Joanna Newsom.
The variety is fantastic though, coz you also have a rocking cover of "My Generation", and a jazzy Sinatra-ish duet with Simple Kid. Yes- Simple Kid is on it! Can it get any groovier??
Well, it can. This album has the best exit I have ever heard (listen right to the end!!)
Four words: excentic, charming, haunting, and more than a bit nutty.
