Boy In Static - Lifetime Achievement Award - Alien Transistor (UK) 7''
Boy In Static. Singer-songwriter gear on the Notwists label. 'Lifetime Achievment' is yearning & heartfelt with slight strings, brushed drums & intriguing muffled effects displaying a slightly woozy lo-fi feel akin to Hood or maybe a bit of very earlyTindersticks. The Alias remix of 'Stay Awake' is like a downtempo Sixtoo re-jigging The Notwist, not surprisingly, with a splash of Death Cab for Cutie.
