Release date: 21.02.2015
Skullsplitter is the impressive new album that confirms Chenaux’s singular aesthetic: genuine, natural, unaffected vocals gliding through slow, smoky melodies while electric and nylon-string guitars are deployed with adventurous texture. Deluxe vinyl, includes download codes.
Crooned, balladic vocals set against experiments with nylon string and electric guitars, with a crisp, jazz-inflected songwriting style bent out of shape by more avant garde elements. Some minor gems on here - check. Recommended if you like Low, Robert Wyatt, Jessica Bailiff and Wes Mongomery!
