    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: ENO • HYDE, KRB, & THE GHOST WOLVES

     

     

    No your eyes do not deceive you, the combination of Brian Eno and Karl Hyde bring us album number two in as many months. 'High Life' is a short but strong album that further illustrates the potent combination that is Eno • Hyde.

    'Divisadero' is an album from Irish act KRB. The band was formed by Kevin Richard Broderick (hence the name) who was once part of another fine act Reko. This is a different sound; one which is as much powerful as it is hypnotic at times.

    The Ghost Wolves may well have unleashed the best Rock Album of 2014 so far. 'Man, Woman, Beast' is bulging with posture and attitude. Rumours are circulating that they may be coming to this year’s Electric Picnic (with BP Fallon), let’s hope this turns out to be true.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'LAZYBOY TV' BY LAZYBOY

     


     

    'Lazyboy TV' is an album that arrived in 2004. It's best described as a pop/spoken word project put together by producers Soren Rasted (of Aqua - yes, the band that brought us 'Barbie Girl') and Johnny Douglas. It's an extraordinary album that features American comedian Greg Giraldo, British voice-over artist Julie Berry and singer Toby Chapman.

    Dan features tracks from the album as this week's Buried Treasure.
