‘Fragile State’ Review: Popsicle (English)
9th February 2009
Norwegian Rhys Marsh’s new album is a soulful affair that works best after 3am. “Can’t Stop The Dreaming” and “Liquorice Kiss” wouldn’t be out of place on Duncan Sheik’s sublime debut album. With folks like Mellotron legend Mattias Olsson (Änglagård, Pineforest Crunch) on hand to add depth to the production, this is a dreamy slice of progressive pop that doesn’t sound quite like anything else we’ve heard in a long time.
