capitol k - Notes from Life on the Wire with a Wrecking Ball

Following swiftly on the heels of recent Steve Lamacq single of the week 'Libertania' comes the accompanying full length from Kristian Craig Robinson. One of the first things that's likely to strike you about opener 'Diamond Skies' is just how much Robinson sounds like a less apocalyptic - more rave-centric - David Tibet. The half-spoken, half-sung vocal pans between stereo channels, eventually settling for a monologue about the early '90s, all fittingly accompanied by a dayglo acid house stabs. Things settle into a more songlike structure for 'Go Go Go' before smoothing out even further for that aforementioned single. Once again the half-spoken vocal tendencies crop up, only this time they're less like Current 93 and more like Dan Le Sac & Scroobius Pip cannibalising a Notwist record after getting bored of looping 'Planet Telex' all day. despite conjuring up such An unwholesome image, it actually proves to be a fine piece of electronic pop. Showing a real creative restlessness, Robinson decides to have a go at polishing and smoothing out a spot of baile funk on 'Favela Acid', before rocking out like a digitised Belle & Sebastian on 'Drum St.'. All very strange. More explicitly electronic outings tend to be more immediately appealing, with something like 'Rocked/Shocked' sounding like woozy, melted down version of Gershon Kingsley's 'Popcorn'. By no means overlong at 41 minutes, Notes From Life On The Wire With A Wrecking Ball still feels sprawling and broad in its scope thanks to Robinson's stylistic fusions and predilection for genre bending.
