In search of sounds at the opening of the year I checked Twitter for any mention of Songs of Green Pheasant - it was 5 years since `Ghylling Street' the pure atmospheric beauty of Duncan Sumptner's 3rd album, sound tracking the journey into Scotland's highlands perfectly (though it's theme was the time he spent in Falmouth as a student.) - to my surprise one of the first tweets was someone excited at the news of a new album.
`Soft Wounds', like Paul Buchanan's `Mid Air' and Gravenhurst's 'The Ghost In Daylight' isn't just an album. This is a fully formed expression of an artist - packaged in card with a lyric sheet emblazed with Sumptner's dark art (he's a secondary school art teacher by day), songs that resonate with lyrical themes...endless drawings of figure eights...kids dying of boredom...looking down on houses and trees, like an old war pilot. And it's all wrapped in the most beautiful melancholic melodies you'll find this side of Bark Psychosis' `Hex'. Yeah it's short and there's a couple of basic instrumentals that don't do anything other than frame the more epic portraits here, but that's the point of them. The cold early months of 2012 were taken up by this beautiful testament to people lost too soon, lives wasted and time passing without passion. Let it do the same for you in 2013?
In short, yes. However, before sampling this excellent LP, it must be noted that "Build" is not a carbon copy of their debut. A definite positive: Baddies' have evolved their sound. With the addition of their new synthesizer toy, their sound has been increased massively. While the trademark Baddies vibe remains, of catchy hooks and tunes that you can't stop listening to, it has, to be cliche, matured. Rather than focusing on punchy 2-3 minute tunes, the songwriting has taken a head on "Build". Whilst it still maintains the classic Baddies' sound on tracks such as "Man Made Man" or debut single "Bronto", it is easy to see so much work has been put into writing the album as a whole; shown by the longer tracks such as "Mind Machines" or "The Lightmen".
As long as you don't expect Baddies to run the same ground, you will be pleased to hear a whole new dimension to the Southend based band. It may require a few listens if you have played "Do the Job" as much as I have, but you will be pleased to hear what an immense growth the new album is. It is not to be compared with, but to sampled *alongside* the first album. Definitely one of the best of 2012 so far.
