Something of a grammatical poser for King Creosote's latest release from
the K.C. Rules OK album. Before accusations build about 679 milking this
album somewhat, it should be pointed out that this is a re-edited album
version from Simon Gogerly and includes several other goodies.
Chief attraction is the gorgeous demo That Waltzer, a weightless song
that drifts away in a haze of subtle electronic effects and sustained
accordion, a truly magical effect. Third part of the E.P. is Vice Like Gist
Of It, reproduced in unadulterated form from the album with sublime cello
solo intact. The title track, meanwhile, starts with what sounds like a cat
stretching before King Creosote poses his many questions. To clinch the
deal for fans with record players, the 7" single contains a collection of
postcards featuring the delectable artwork from We Are Tourist.
Something of an old-fashioned air to this then in terms of the format,
and the music itself communicates through Kenny Anderson's wonderfully
rounded voice. If you've not already heard the album, then this will serves
as a good introduction. You'll be wanting to buy it soon after.
