Brett Anderson – Slow Attack

Posted in Indie by newmusicexcess on January 4, 2010

Slow Attack Track listing:

1. Hymn
2. Wheatfields
3. The Hunted
4. Frozen Roads
5. Summer
6. Pretty Widows
7. The Swans
8. Ashes of Us
9. Scarecrows and Lilacs
10. Julian’s Eyes
11. Leave Me Sleeping

On Slow Attack you can hear that Brett Anderson has been heavily influenced by film soundtracks. The use of piano, cello, hurdy-gurdy and woodwind combine beautifully with Anderson’s pastoral musings and his strong rich vocal tone. With the relaxed style inherent in the compositions I think the title, Slow Attack, says it all.
