Format: Audio CD
I don't know if Type records are being serious and are a bit deluded or completely taking the piss with the accolade stickers they put on their cds. The one for 2007's North Sea album confused the hell out of me and this one for Skallander is no different; "A sun-bleached collection of twisted acoustic pop songs......which is sure to win over fans of Elliott Smith or Kings of Convenience". Hmmmm......

As with a big portion of releases from Type, Skallander is actually quite dark and definitely comes way over from left-field. The first lyric on the album is; "The dark stain spreads into a sea, it looks like me. Nothing you can say will make it go away, I kick you down the stairs and you ran away laughing...". Happy happy joy joy! I've never been known to shy away from dark music so I listen on. You do actually get a "sun-bleached" feel from this, implying it's mellow, lazy and easy going. Whilst being quite dark, the wonderful acoustic guitar playing shines through and keeps the lyrics afloat. The singer's voice is fairly soft and non-descript but does fit perfectly in a hazy, complementary way.

Dismemberment is definitely my favourite track; it's weirdly catchy and playful and opens with the lyric; "She arrived home to find that the wolf had eaten her things". Brilliant! The layered harmonised vocal draws you into the track and make it one of those moments where you pat yourself on the back, congratulating yourself on a great recent purchase.
Skallander don't vary their approach much; opting for acoustic guitar and soft vocal; all the while various keys, horns & other accompaniments and backings filter in and out of the proceedings.

the acoustic guitar is a funny old instrument. no really, it can so often double as an instrument of torture - witness bob dylan at his most odious. think damien rice pouring out his heart and soul, blissfully aware that every time i hear any of his music i die a little inside
skallander seem to be doing something different. instead of 'aimless strum acoustic guitar' they're using it to create an atmosphere of menace, where all is not as it seems. i'm not sure of seeing them being described as folk music as that normally has me running for the hills, whereas here i stand my ground. it's not perfect, mind; after a strong opening it fades and never really recovers its momentum. but for a while at least i can have my faith in music back. all is not yet lost
