Label: Low Point Link: Myspace When I sit down to review an album and notice that the opening track is over seventeen minutes long I know that I’m either in for a long, hard slog of a listening session or the time will fly by and the length will be a pleasure rather than a chore. Kyle Bobby Dunn’s A Young Person’s Guide To Kyle Bobby Dunn definitely fits into the latter to such an extent that I forgot I was listening to review it and was just enjoying the atmosphere it creates in your head. How I actually put the emotions and feelings it creates into words is another matter. A lazy reviewer could describe it as a laid back Cosmogramma. A lazy reviewer trying to appear non-lazy would describe it as Flying Lotus putting down the DMT and the Atari and picking up some valium and a string quartet. However you describe it you cannot help but love the record and the inventiveness of it. When confronted with the prospect of listening to twelve songs, stretching to almost two hours you can become somewhat daunted, and AYPGTKBN won’t be everybody’s cup of tea. If, however, you like your music to tick boxes such as haunting, experimental, atmospheric and interesting I urge you to listen to and enjoy this unusual and brave piece. To sum up, this is like Flying Lotus putting down the DMT and the Atari and picking up some valium and a string quartet. Photobucket
