I haven’t had nearly enough time to fully digest the new Notwist record, The Devil, You + Me. On first listen, I didn’t instantly fall in love with it, as I did with Neon Golden, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I can definitely tell it is going to take many a listen to fully grok all that Marcus Acher has accomplished. One thing I can’t get over is the darkness of the track “On Planet Off.” It is gorgeous and dark and is exactly what I was expecting from the new Portishead. Perhaps Geoff Barrow should have teamed up with Acher for Third.
