Dan Le Sac - 'Space Between The Words'
Not a flawless record, but an exciting one
6 / 10
The beardy dude who works with Scroobius Pip is following his bandmate’s lead and going solo. As you’d expect from a man most often found twiddling a keyboard, ‘Space Between The Words’ is guest-heavy, and the motley crew of collaborators is the best thing about it. The production is bombastic, and works tremendously on the Merz-featuring ‘Long Night Of Life’. Likewise ‘Play Along’, which bolsters Sarah Williams White’s vocal slinking perfectly. But Emmy The Great’s turn on ‘Memorial’ is wildly misjudged, the disco synthetics crushing her schoolgirlish coo. Often patchy, never boring.
