Album: Liam Finn, Fomo (Transgressive)
Sunday 03 July 2011
Finn's second album continues the project he undertook with his first – namely to shake off the shackles of being "Neil Finn's son" by swamping his dreamy, Beatles-esque pop songs with moments of electronic and percussive madness.
It still makes more sense in the live setting where he loops guitar lines before impersonating Animal from the Muppets behind the kit. None of this should distract you from the fact that he's as good a happy/sad singer-songwriter as anyone.
Is the comedy album making a comeback?comedy
