Cosmo Sheldrake - 'The Much Much How How And I'

8/10

All the way back in 2013 was the first that we heard from Cosmo Sheldrake. A quick couple of singles in the form of 'The Fly' and 'The Moss' was nearly all we got out of him before he disappeared to do some personal searching for himself. But firmly back with us, the frontman unveils his long-awaited debut album 'The Much Much How How And I', a record that aims to intrigue and confuse as much as its title does.

The one image that keeps coming to mind throughout this release is one of a psychedelic woodland, where trees and animal morph and melt together as one to create this otherworldly experience that draws you in as it plays. Throw in some pulsing percussion, and Sheldrake has managed to create a record that breathes and swells as one entity, moving from one track to the next with little resistance and making for a thoroughly enjoyable listen throughout.

There is certainly something at work in the mind of Cosmo Sheldrake but we just can't put our finger on it, then again maybe that is the secret to his songwriting. This debut album is blissful wonder with many joyful moments to experience, a truly warming release.
