Dollboy – Further Excursions Into The Ulu With Dollboy (Kooky)

SH | ‘Helicopter_Microbes’ begins with the clicky electronica I know Dollboy for. It then moves into a very Tunng aesthetic, in fact the album could be mistaken for their return – complete with a mellotron sound prepared for a Vashti Bunyan session – before veering straight into twin axe anaesthesia like Tommy Bolin never threw his six. From techno minimalism to acid folk and then… Supertramp? ‘A Golden Age’ seems to re-do seriously what Adam, Joe and the Conchords did in jest, a Bowie pastiche and homage: This is a seriously weird record, file under ‘all over the shop’.
