Comment: I used to adore and hate the list of the best albums at the end of year. I hate it because many excellent releases issued in a certain year I had had no time to listen to them and add to the list. One of such albums is Red Cosmos` sophomore issue Dreaming In Unison. Indeed, three long years had passed since the Englishman Kim Tortoise released his debut There And Back on Clinical Archives in 2012. The issue starts off with high-spirited Kindred, which is an excellent indie/chillwave pop with ennobling harmonics, blissful noisy sonic shards and post-punk gears chiming like…Red Cosmos meets The Cure. The album will be finished off by Shout Into The Sky, which is similarly highly epic and beautiful. Both of them are real pop gems to be measured up to pop charts. That`s the fact. I am really fascinated by them being not tired after listening to them many times in a row. In the meantime, Kim Tortoise’s account could be considered more sophisticated thereby reminding of his compatriots Nick Currie aka Momus and Alan Driscoll aka The Womb`s doings. More profoundly, he likes to play with the listener`s attitude and aesthetical perceptions in elegant way. Funk Night sounds like being a tribute to Spacemen 3, and Spiritualized mingling together poppy and experimental sides of alternative pop music. Frequently his aesthetic is saturated with humour and sadness, a times being buffoonish, thereof catching hold of the listener even with greater strength. At We Should Have Kissed Kim Tortoise shows again his immense love towards post-punk rhythmic lines. Carnal Vindicator is an amusing blend of music hall, comedy and electro-rockabilly. In fact, what the fuck is that? Taken together, get this album of 12 different chapters full of uncanny artsy phenomena while being up to.
