ALBUM REVIEW: King Creosote – Astronaut Meets Appleman

king_creosote_-_astronaut_meets_appleman

Rating7Scotsman Kenny Anderson has long dwelled on the fringes of indie and experimental pop music, releasing over forty albums that traverse a large expanse of creative terrain. His latest finds him exploring graceful and emotive music, drawing on electronic and organic instrumentation and positioned between the terrestrial and ethereal. The results are often moving and transportive, the unifying element being Anderson’s rich Scottish burr of a voice. This is an album that necessitates repeat listens with a myriad of details and nuances –lyrically and musically – revealing themselves each time. Astronaut Meets Appleman is sophisticated and literate music, devoid of pretension.
