Review of Quite A Way Away [12k1070]

Monsieur Delire (FR)

Here we are: the 12k label’s transformation from minimal techno to songwriting is complete. The welcome slide from to electronica to electroacoustic to acoustic music, and then from instrumental music to lyric-based songs finds its culmination in this beautiful CD of acoustic songs by Gareth Dickson. He has the voice of a dark and handsome character, and lyrics were suffering and personal growth are universalized to let the listener insert his or her own personal experience between the words. A simple and very elegant record.
