ECHOBOY: Giraffe: CD

Bloody amazing. I’ve only recently found Echoboy – but he has quite a history. This is his third release on Mute, where he has called on the always fine talents of producer Flood to assist. A mixture of post punk meets electro in a fucking remarkable album. You get a little bit of this and a little bit of that – and it makes for a very accessible album compared to his past releases. From folkish electro tracks to borderline disco songs that would appeal to those “electroclash” kids. It’s great for people like me who have terribly schizophrenic tastes in music – and tend to be a little more open minded when it comes to the evolution of music. Three cheers for Echoboy.
