lloyd cole

I’ll be honest in saying that we lurched in the blink of a eye for the play button on this, the mere mention of synth pop in the press release inadvertently drawing our interest. Alas not, I do so wish he’d do more stuff with the Bureau B imprint, instead something a little more reflective, considered and dare we say, bitter sweet. we refer of course to ‘the over under’ the latest track to be peeled from Lloyd Cole’s recently acclaimed ‘guesswork’ full length. now I don’t know about you, but for me, I’ve never heard Cole sound so vulnerable, exposed and honest, it almost hurts in a way you rarely hear done with such subtle brutal measuring outside of a Orbison ballad minus the intensity of course, but still all the same, cradled and forlorn by a haunting where are we now full stop all set to a delicate melodic pulse light. bruising stuff.
