Song(s) of the Day # 3,111 DC Gore


An unusual album just out on Domino Records from DC Gore, previously of Little Cub. All These Things is unusual in that it sounds so old school. Jarvis Cocker, The Divine Comedy and Pet Shop Boys came immediately to mind on first play. Smart, arty but approachable pop, the kind of thing that seemed a thing of the past.

You can't do this kind of thing if your songs don't have a bit of flesh and substance to your songs and Gore certainly has those. It's slightly disconcerting to get reminders of the kind of romantically tinted pop music that used to be relatively commonplace yet also quite mainstream despite its bohemian impulses. I'm not sure I'll listen again but I found this quite engaging this morning.
