big eyes Love Is Gone Mad (CD, £12.25)label: pickled egg
Third album by this Leeds/Sheffield ensemble. This 16-track collection is based around an exploration of the theme of lovesongs in all their many manifestations. Themes run the gamut from full on lust to intimacy and from awkwardness to melancholy. Recorded and arranged for the fist time with consideration to the live and set up. Differing from its predecessors in this respect, perhaps being less experimental but more viceral. Think Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Erik Satie, Dirty Three, Arvo Part, Spanish and East European folk music.
