Allison, Dot : Message personnel

It might be down to Big Leaves’ distinctly fuzzy logic, but notions of ‘sense’ appear to be breaking down fast, singles-wise.[I] “I’m inside/I’m outside/I’m with you/Without you”[/I], doe-eyed comedown siren/skimpily-gifted Screamadelic scenester (delete as applicable) [a]Dot Allison[/a] breathes in hazy multitrack. Crucially, though, these exhalations come without the gravitas that bumps illogicality up to the realm of poetry. Meanwhile, dreamtime loops layer round her, and a tune loses out to atmospherics that are something less than blissful. What Kevin Shields is doing playing for the chemical generation’s [a]Enya[/a] is a puzzle, when the delicate promise that sparkled from Dot‘s first single, ‘Tomorrow Never Comes’, seems to have been huffily taken back by the talent fairy.
