Giant: Herman Dune - The Glory Of Old style songcrafting and musicianship,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Giant (Audio CD)
This 2006 release is the eighth album from musical duo Herman Dune.
The tone throughout is light and breezy, with a set of jaunty gentle guitar led folksy/poppy tunes laden with catchy hooks. The songwriting is very good, with some great lyrics that get stuck in the mind. The deal with themes of love and life, all with a wonderfully wry sense of humour that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. As another reviewer has said, it is a perfect summer's day album.
The vocalist has a very easygoing style, but manages to combine clarity with quite a lot of colour and feeling. The musicianship is deceptive in that it sounds simple, but there is some genuinely interesting and complex stuff going on. In all an excellent album of gorgeous, mellow singing and catchy melodies that will find itself quite often in my CD player.
