Yet more horizontal lounge-soul for graphic designers...
Top of the range BMW’s glide effortlessly to a standstill on gravel drives in
deepest Umbria. Fashionably bedraggled couples canoodle over
pistachio nuts in pine-scented loft spaces on the Hoxton
borders. Yup, it’s [a]Faithless[/a], back with yet more horizontal lounge-soul
for graphic designers.
Unfathomably popular in the same way as the [a]Lighthouse Family[/a]
and the property ladder, [a]Faithless[/a], or so we are led to believe,
occupy a higher level of consciousness normally only attainable by Trappist
monks, yoga instuctors and viewers of ‘The Late Review’. What
this actually means is that we get a thumping drum track, some meandering
ambient keyboards and Rollo mumbling spidery extracts from his
diaries over the top of it. Sample lyric: [I]’Down in the shadows of your
deepest secrets/I sleep next to the precepts you hold most dear'[/I]. Arrgh!
So soberly self-satisfied it makes you want to strap yourself onto the front of
a speeding tank playing [a]Oasis[/a] at full-tilt whilst juggling live
hand grenades. Pays the mortgage, though…
