Hayden Thorpe (Wild Beasts)
Moondust For My Diamond
Whilst his name may suggest something difficult to surmount, listening to this album is a walk in the park! Thorpe has made a record that is galvanising, reassuring, elegant, seductive: it oozes Big Cosmic Energy.
In contrast to ‘Diviner’, a record that very much favoured the inner world, ‘Moondust For My Diamond’ sees Hayden Thorpe moving into a more natural visual and sonic palette, gazing outward on the world.
