Product description

DAVID SYLVIAN Blemish (2003 UK 8-track CD his sixth solo album featuring avant-garde guitarist Derek Bailey and Austrian guitarist and electronic musician Fennesz fold-out digipak picture sleeve SOUND-CD0001)

Amazon.co.uk

Blemish is ex-Japan frontman David Sylvian's long-awaited follow-up to 1999's Dead Bees on a Cake. That album was, in part at least, a celebration of his love for wife Ingrid Chavez and couched in suitably blissful and luxuriant jazz/ambient tones. Blemish, by contrast, is a fraught, wracked and occasionally embittered affair, a more difficult though equally rewarding listening experience. The opening title track, for example, is a lengthy and anguished excursion, its lyrical theme of estrangement set to a broody, quivering guitar chord and punctuated by moments of musical violence.

There are three bold collaborations with veteran British improv guitarist Derek Bailey, whose spare, atonal haiku tones will present a challenge to those who turn to Sylvian for comfort listening. The scratchy, CD-skipping effects of "The Only Daughter" are also calculated to disconcert the listener, while "Late Night Shopping" is shot through with disquieting intentions and laced with sinister strains of avant-garde noise. This, however, is a brave album and in its own way as beautiful as its predecessor in its starkness. --David Stubbs
