I bought KU last week and can't stop listening to it. I find it intimate and non-intrusive, and rarely feel bored listening to it. Interestingly I skip the most commercial track on the album 'Our Frank'; and the so called duff numbers are fascinating, even The Harsh Truth of the Camera Eye. The more I listen the more charm and magic this album acquires. It certainly wasn't made for the Top Twenty Radio play list; like all of Mozzer's work it demands time and appreciation. 'Found Found Found' seems to have been completely buggered up by the producers, the best bit is at the end literally!
There is an air of pathos on this record that is both beguilling and alluring. I also bought Southpaw Grammar last week, and I've only played it once. I find KU far too interesting and intriguing. I know KU was discussed in great detail here last week, but I'd really like to hear what other people have to say - do you feel the same way?
Perhaps we are so used to hearing over-long over-produced music in western society is there a distinct possibility that KU is indeed a masterpiece of subtlety and nuance and perhaps we don't know it? The I-produced-this-in-my-bedroom vibe on the album only adds to its brilliance and 'listenability'- now there's a neo-logism for you.
