SotD - Dama Scout


Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he looks out for Dama Scout...

Format: 7″ black vinyl

Side A: a busy slow beat fused with an angelicly distorted vocal. Twisty twangy new wave guitar drizzled with a light topping of dreamy lyrics resulting in a delicious 90s indie movie theme pudding. Layered sounds flies into a wide open disharmonic splurge. One for the cymbal-holics out there.


Side B: Cure-esque shuffling lo fi discordant indie quirkiness. A rich road journey of whimsical yet ghostly vocals hitting regular 80s goth speedbumps along the way. Languid and unusual…leaves you staring at the dance floor as you mumble and stumble the night away.

Finyl Thought: the finest sort of naughty messiness you don’t mind cleaning up afterwards. An experimental indie mendicant gazing lovingly in the mirror at their inner 80s muso.
