Description

Two on CD

2014 release, the second album from the Scottish duo. Momus and David McClymont live far from their homeland (which happens to be deciding whether to become a fully-fledged nation this year). TWO is their second collaboration, and this time the pair (Momus in Osaka and McClymont in Melbourne) have wrapped hard-hitting political lyrics around a handmade, ethnic sound. Both emerged from Scotland's Postcard Records scene (McClymont was in Orange Juice, Momus worked with ex-members of Josef K), and the pair share a strong work ethic and radical views including a firm 'YES!' to independence for Scotland! The songs would typically begin in Melbourne in David McClymont's home studio, then get vocals, new arrangements and 'scratch videos' added in Osaka. Although the sound is less obviously '80s-retro than the sequencer dance music of Momusmcclymont 1, TWO takes it's cue as much from 1980s World Music as 1960s ethno-musicological Psychedelia; the record runs an eclectic gamut from MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF GHOSTS to Syd Barrett.
