Album Review: Larry Gus - I Need New Eyes

23 September 2015 | 5:09 pm | Guido Farnell

"Gus confidently works a mind-melting kaleidoscope of diverse global styles."

The prolific Larry Gus confidently works a mind-melting kaleidoscope of diverse global styles to present fresh perspectives on psychedelic-pop, held together by hooks and sweet melodies.

Mixing up tribal drums, exotic Arabian groove, Brazilian tropicalia, hyperactive polyrhythms and even a little '80s synth-pop, Gus's mind seemingly moves in many directions simultaneously. On this record he demonstrates restraint steering towards coherence and away from impenetrable chaos. Moving to the beat of his own drum, Gus eschews fashion to deliver dancefloor kicks that are sparkling fresh.
