LISTEN: Cosmo Sheldrake - 'The Much Much How How and I'

It's finally here! Cosmo Sheldrake's debut record, wonderfully titled The Much Much How How And I was released last week, and after a few listens I can confirm it is as wacky, crazy and incredible as I had hoped it would be. An instant favourite for me is the super short but sweet Birthday Suit, reminiscent for me, as much of the album is, of music in classic Disney movies (Dumbo's 'Pink Elephants on Parade' for instance.) Recent single Wriggle remains a favourite, as well as the track below, Pliocene, which a little Wiki research tells me is "the epoch in the geologic timescale that extends from 5.333 million to 2.58 million years BP" - listening to Cosmo's music counts as a Geography/Science lesson substitute, I'm certain of it. Another favourite to emerge from the record is the closing track Hocking, an indulgent five minutes building to a two minute outro with an array of brass and percussion, creating something that appears almost crowded and a little intense, but which closes the record perfectly.
