Album: Teitur, Let the Dog Drive Home (Ear Music)
Sunday 03 April 2011
It comes hieroglyphed with simple line cartoons depicting a lank-eared dog enduring an assortment of scrapes, which is just about right for the music.
Teitur (it's a he) writes "naive", rueful songs exploring the mysteries of experience – a cartoon dog's life in pop form. Arrangements combine the electronic with the acoustic but always minimalistically, all of it carefully restrained to leave room for Teitur's light, not-quite-affectless tenor to make its gentle sweeps of melody.
To mark Tolstoy's 186th birthdaybooks
