I have no idea what to call this type of music. That is, how to label it or place it in a genre. It’s pop, to be certain. Very clever pop. I suppose there’s some Talking Heads influence in here, but I don’t know either band well enough to say for certain. Regardless, I love it. I don’t pull it out of the CD rack as often as, say, CLOSE TO THE EDGE. But, every once in a while, a cold, grey morning calls for the wonderfully cynical and yet simultaneously innocent sounds of Blancmange. Utterly clever.
