Product notities

The Full Clown Service came together after a year of travel for Loren Scott... six months through South East Asia followed by a beautiful winter in Berlin created space to put the ten tracks in order. On returning to London, Loren approached producer and collaborator Gary Brady once again to put the full album together. Guy Whitby returned to play drums on a number of tracks, but most of the material was recorded using hand percussion and all manner of ingenious low-fi tricks to move beyond the range of the conventional drum kit. Loren Scott - Guitars & Vocals Gary Brady - Bass, keyboards and all the tools... Guy Whitby - Where there's drums Guest vocals: Massimo Martella and Toby Carter All songs written by Loren Scott Produced by Gary Brady & Loren Scott at Escapade Music Studio Mastered by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering REVIEWS: Beginning gently, we set the scene. A pacing acoustic guitar, some synth-style beeps and a tender beat, not to mention a stunning voice. But just wait. Bursting into a beautifully rich finale of vocals and guitar before finally slowing down into the soft restful tempo we heard before is opener 'Don't Let Love'. 'Glass' is a soaring anthem with soothing vocals gliding over a chaos of crashing percussion and pianos, little ruptures of guitar sprinkled throughout. Folk-rock grounds are covered with the epic that is 'Kissing Skulls', a stomping drum beat and a current of cascading chords are the perfect setting to vocals delivered with a feverish gusto. Keeping with the acoustic ambience is the delightfully honest 'Sunday (Seemed Like A Good Idea)', coaxing your mind back to summery nineties Britpop ballads. 'The Full Clown Service' just keeps getting stronger as we move into 'So Many Reasons' which is more reminiscent of the Pet Shop Boys, ambitious and striking. 'Looks like Leaper' has bongo drums and staccato pianos galore before emerging into a whirl of guitar, mirroring that of the peculiar darkness of 'Nothing Left'. Another wonderful thing about this album is how the instrumental numbers are just as strong as the lyric laden ones - they have the same impact and sit so comfortably together. So often instrumentals are boring, just there as filler for a good five minutes of an album, but for Loren Scott, the instrumentals are a way of showcasing talent and a broad musical mind. A whispering and twinkling that blossoms into a kitchen sink of percussion and plucking is the gorgeously laidback 'London Fields', so tuned to the finest details that the song comes alive, making the most simple of things so beautiful. It's a song that highlights the subtle variety of this album perfectly as the closest attentions to detail are the key to creating such a huge effect on the listener. You feel the music, there is nothing such as listening anymore as you become of part of what you are hearing, entwining yourself into the pitches and tones. This is truly something wonderful.

As it happens all these descriptions are accurate for this singer and songwriter who shows remarkable depth and versatility on her second album. Aided by a sterling line-up of backing musicians, 'The Full Clown Service' is a classy alternative rock affair Scott is blessed with a fine voice; sometimes so deep you'd be forgiven for thinking this is a male artist. She casts a brooding presence on just about every track on here from the half-gloomy, half-grungy opener 'Don't Let Love...' to tense instrumental closer 'Perimeter'. 'So Many Reasons' and 'Opium Of The Week' are top notch indie rockers with plenty of soul. It's indicative of the overall quality of the record that even low-slung instrumental 'London Fields' sounds atmospheric and important whilst the vocal hooks for 'Sunday' are complemented by strings. Best of all is 'Glass'; a beautifully mysterious piece of work with Scott lending her ghostly presence over a shimmering backdrop. The production for 'The Full Clown Service' is spot on with spacious arrangements perfectly complementing the breathy quality of Scott's own tones. Equal parts haunting, intense and emotional, this is a seriously good artist who doesn't need any quirky gimmicks to stand out.

'Don't Let Love' is a persuasive, snaky opener, with an explosive chorus and a strong tune. Scott's full-force vocal leaves nothing to be desired. 'Kissing Skulls' is an up-tempo song that allows Scott the full use of her expressive vocals to a punchy backing. It's a curious yet compelling song. 'London Fields' has a becalmed but hardly dull mood that she takes full advantage of. It's somewhat like PJ Harvey a while ago. 'Opium of the Week' has a tune that easily lodges in the mind and a propulsive feel that suits Scott's delivery well. It's one of the most intriguing things on offer here. But the entire album has much to recommend it to the listener. Anna Maria Stjärnell - Luna Kafé.
