Grayson Gilmour, Otherness (2017)
I’m a fan of Grayson Gilmour – though I had let that slip over the last couple of year; he’s been a prolific force as singer/songwriter, band-member/collaborator, composer – and I’ve kept up with some, but not all of what he’s done…I’d forgotten, in that way that happens, about some of his earlier albums that I loved…so the chance of a new album is the chance to head back to the old stuff too. I received, quite out of the blue, a vinyl copy of the new album – Otherness. Flying Nun sent it through, which was something of a shock really, but greatly appreciated; will be writing a review at some point. But just adding it here to the Vinyl Countdown files. A very special album this – a lovely, and brilliant pop record full of glorious, mesmerising music. Henrietta Harris’ album cover (and her artwork in general) deserves praise too.
