Piano Interrupted - Two By Four (CD Days of Being Wild)
What is this monstrosity? Nine cuts by a duo comprising Tom Hodge (piano) and Franz Kirmann (electronics), where playful keys are melded into banks of electronic swells, beats and presumably sampled strings. Lightweight and veering towards the poppy and accessible, it reeks with the stench of muso as it ‘cleverly’ attempts to bridge the gaps between modern classical, pop and the kinda cloying, over-produced, electronica the likes of Mouse On Mars also annoyed everybody with. Fucking vile. . RJ.
