Metronomy: The English Riviera (2011)
Az English Riviera egy nagyon decens elektro-experimentális-pop album lett. A fiú vokálok erősen idézik Tunde Adebimpe-t a TV On the Radio-ból, és egyenek mellett ezért is emlékeztet engem a Metronomy a méltán híres brooklyni csapatra. Nem koppintás, inkább majdnem olyan jók ők is. Az a kicsi különleges valami azért hiányzik, de mindentől függetlenül jó volt járni egyet az angol riviérán.
Metronomy have been around for a good while as Joseph Mount started this project back in '99 in Devon. At this time his band mates are Anna Prior (a girl on drums! - now that's something I've always digged), Oscar Cash and Gbenka Adelekan. As far as original works are concerned, the guys were not that prolific all these years as English Riviera is only their third proper release. A very good one, though. The vocals on the album much resemble that of Tunde Adebimpe from TV On The Radio and in general, when listening to English Riviera it's the famed Brooklyn band that comes to mind. I'm not saying Metronomy is a TVOTR knock-off. No. They are almost as good as TVOTR, without that special little something. All in all, it was really nice walking on the English Riviera this morning.
