robin guthrie & harold budd - Bordeaux
To my ears Harold Budd’s signature piano sound and Robin Guthrie’s patented Cocteau Twins shimmer have always been two elements made for each other. On the Cocteau Twins classic (and largely instrumental) ‘The Moon And The Melodies’ I discovered Budd’s music for the first time, and since then the two have collaborated on a number of occasions, always ending up with music that is as soulful and emotional as it is utterly captivating. This latest full-length, recorded in Bordeaux, France is possibly their most perfect selection to date and the two musicians sound totally comfortable with each other’s distinctive role in the project. Budd’s piano sounds better than ever, echoing as if trapped in a waterlogged cave, and Guthrie’s guitar playing has lost none of its token emotion and beauty since his days in the Cocteau Twins. I’m sure there are plenty of Cocteaus fans who have avoided their work since ‘Heaven or Last Vegas’ (I know a few…) but do yourselves a favour and at least take a listen to ‘Bordeaux’, beneath the echo and dense haze is the heart and soul we all fell in love with all those years ago. Unmissable stuff.
