The Tom Bosley Experience: Who's Your Daddy?
By Steph Gray
The beauty of this eclectic album lies in the variety of synthesised sound and samples tweaked and looped by songwriters Sean Murgatroyd and Peter Lewis. The 12-song album is their second, and features the spoken words and lyrics of female vocalists who sweeten some of the darker songs' cerebral themes of madness and discomfort. Ranging from metallic space-speak to heavenly layers, the synthscapes are twistedly reminiscent of the Orb's '90s come-down tracks, and are skilfully grounded with just enough bass. The deliberate silliness of some of the content can be attributed to electro-geek humour. Stand-out tracks for me are Studfinger, with its surprise rock riffs and seductive profanity, and You Believe Me Don't You - a seven-minute dramatic number that sucks you in with the hilarious sample of an exorcism taken from the NZ film 'Belief'. A special mention must be made of the cool cover art - a montage of surrealistic imagery just made for the music. www.tombosleyexperience.com
