Hello Skinny by Hello Skinny
Released: Nov 2012
Label: Slowfoot Records
Taking his name from a Residents song, Hello Skinny (London's Tom Skinner) spins together a dizzying mixture of dubby post-rock, jazz and genre-agnostic electronic music on his absorbing debut album. The title track, featuring clarinets and a blistering sax solo from Shabaka Hutchings, sounds like Talk Talk and Massive Attack flirting with free jazz; "Crush" approximates the loosey-goosey house of Four Tet and Daphni, while "Me and My Lady" dips into Morricone-tinged Americana. It's a lush, deeply listenable album of experimental music that poses as many questions as it answers.
