Boomkat Product Review:
Simon Bookish is the pseudonym of London-based composer Leo Chadburn, whose career has seen him working on sound art installations, collaborations with Leafcutter John and Polar Bear's Seb Rochford. He's even scored computer music for contemporary dance at the Royal Opera House, and made an appearance in the National Theatre's production of Brecht's Caucasisn Chalk Circle. That's quite some CV. This new album for Tomlab is said to take as its focus the deluge of information that surrounds modern life, and consequently, it's an erratic, overloaded battery of noises and orchestration. Like a cross between Patrick Wolf and The Divine Comedy at the height of their pomp, Bookish sounds at once full of campy bombast and deadly serious about his work. In musical terms what he's doing tends to be incredibly complex and should be applauded, but Bookish's RP vocal delivery might not be to the liking of everyone's palate. Still, a recommended listen.
