Bit of a stunner!,
This review is from: Demon (Audio CD)
Gazpacho have done it again with this little nugget. Not the longest album but they don't waste a moment with this emotional tour de force. The vocals remind me a little of a cross between Radiohead and Ritual very emotive. They always leave me with a feel of melancholy - happy to feel sad!
Just 4 tracks including the almost catchy, at times folky track, The Wizard of Altai Mountains. My current favourite is I've been Walking part 2. Beautiful vocals over a high pitched keyboard with a lovely violin thrown into the mix - the sycamore vocal section particularly hits the spot.
I think the band have actually raised the bar with this one bringing a number of new sounds and elements to their armoury.
Beautiful, sad and dark music. Early days for 2014 - I am enjoying new releases by Transatlantic, Mike Oldfield and War on Drugs, but this has gone to the top of the list. Excellent!
