COSMO SHELDRAKE - SINGLE REVIEW

Cosmo Sheldrake - Pelicans We (Transgressive Records)
Cosmo Sheldrake - Pelicans We

Release Date: Out Now

Time for the new one from LWM favourite Cosmo Sheldrake and I'm so confident that this is going to be a smasher that I haven't even considered that it might disappoint me. Dangerous. The intriguingly titled 'Pelicans We' is, of course, absolutely wonderful from the outset. A twitchy, jerky, clicky beat is soothed with some whimsical keys and, if you're not distracted by the video that was filmed in the Budapest Baths, you'll soon notice Sheldrake's eccentric voice joining in like the more indie son of Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer. Those hip-hop beats, layered vocals and dark, woodland inspired vibes are all trademarks of the genius that is Cosmo Sheldrake but the man just gets better with every tune. This one is more subdued than others that have gone before but even in downtempo mode, this guy beats most other people in to a cocked hat. A big, cocked hat.
