Boomkat Product Review:
Grasscut is the latest project from songwriter and film composer Andrew Philips, an artist also known for his contributions to the One Giant Leap project (which saw him working as vocalist and arranger amongst the likes of Baaba Maal and Neneh Cherry). This debut album is a tremendously accomplished affair with an expansive scope. Philips calls upon all his experience as an arranger for this project, pooling great pop ideas with complex, intertwining instrumentation, as heard on the tricky beat programming and incisive string orchestrations of 'Old Machines' or the borderline insane 'Muppet' which binds elaborate electronic programming with tuned percussion and what sounds like a raygun shoot-out halfway through. Noisy, ambitious and often rather beautiful in a boistrous sort of fashion, this debut is said to draw influence from the likes of Robert Wyatt, Vaughan Williams, Brian Wilson and Gavin Bryars, and as scattershot a selection as that appears to be, such references don't seem too untoward in the light of ornately devised concoctions like the excellent 'Meltwater'.
