BASHFUL HIPS: People, Nature, Death: CD

Bashful Hips, as far as I can tell, is a gent named Ian Fellerman. The music is an occasionally minimalistic-cum-sophisticated offering of synth pop that varies between the bright and the spooky. Odd mix, eh? The vocals throw me for a loop, though; the range is limited, apparently purposely so, and the effect is like putting medieval liturgical chants to weirder, more experimental Tom Waits songs. I could see this as the soundtrack to a Tim Burton movie with Taylor Swift as the lead. –The Lord Kveldulfr (No address listed)
