SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "BLACK BELT" /// "SENSITIVE NEW AGE GUY" - John Grant
John Grant's 2nd solo album is out and it has a few ultimate gems on it. The first single, "Pale Green Ghosts", was already a very promising signal announcing the appetising collaboration between Grant and one of Iceland's most talented producers, Gus Gus' Biggi Veira. The following two tracks are the winners from the very first listen to this surprising record marrying electronica and folk to an astonishing effect. The sound of all three songs mentioned is so uncannily Gus Gus, it will also serve as a much needed bridge between Gus Gus' albums for all those hungry fans like myself.
