Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2007-03-11The former Gus Gus frontman stays in beautiful form on Swallowed A Star. With a voice that sounds like a cross between Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan and David Gray, Agust delivers rather catchy melodies atop of some fine electronically-tinged programming courtesy of Bix. Music-wise, think of Mark Bell's (of LFO on Warp Records) productions for Bjork and Depeche Mode. Combine the two (production and voice), and you have an album that is surprisingly fresh and worthy of another (many) listen (s), often times a rarity these days.
