EDITORS’ NOTES

On the title track Gotye whisper-sings into a lo-fi filter over spacy drones, sounding a lot like Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce. The following “Easy Way Out” makes good use of '60s-style fuzz guitar, tambourine, and bombastic drum parts before his falsettos in the chorus recall a young Beck Hansen. “Smoke and Mirrors” contrasts orchestral accouterments with a big, boomy tribal rhythm.

Impressive

I'm an old fart who was out cruising on a beautiful day with my 14 year old daughter; she had control of the radio. "Somebody That I Used To Know" came on & I was intrigued & asked who this was. Listening to the samples of this album convinced me to purchase. I love the structure & arrangements, which for me, hearken to elements of Peter Hamill, David Bowie & Peter Gabriel, as well as some cool use of percussion.
