Badly Drawn Boy - Banana Skin Shoes Vinyl LP
Badly Drawn Boy Banana Skin Shoes Vinyl LP
First Full-Length Studio Effort In A Decade!
Banana Skin Shoes is Damon Gough's ninth album as Badly Drawn Boy. The project's first full-length studio release since 2010's It's What I'm Thinking Pt.1 – Photographing Snowflakes, the adventurous collection is comprised of 14 tracks recorded with producers Gethin Pearson, Seadna McPhail, Keir Stewart and Youth at Eve Studios in Stockport.
Always one to wear his heart on his sleeve, Banana Skin Shoes is a truly personal and heartfelt selection of songs, a huge statement of intent and the most glorious, colorful warming, honest pop record you'll hear in 2020. The Mercury Prize-winning singer/songwriter calls lead single "Is This A Dream?" - "a sound collage of chaos and confusion to reflect the ridiculous times we live in...A deliberately cartoonesque sonic poke in the eye, to those in whom we place trust, yet instead supply constant barrage of misinformation followed by bad decisions."
"Banana Skin Shoes is a lovely return from one of the most charismatic and reliable singer/songwriters of his generation. Its foundational sentiments and structures are as memorable and smooth as they are relatable and frank, bouncing between uplifting excess and striking candidness without ever losing its playfully multifaceted and imaginative connective tissue. There's as much personal hardship here as there is outgoing celebration, so it winds up an all-inclusive showpiece for what makes Badly Drawn Boy so good." - Jordan Blum, PopMatters
