Scott Sandwich – Sonny Gilford Snr. – It’s 1955 All Over Again – Audio

Scott Sandwich is a conceptual-ideas musician from Australia.

A vivid imagination and more importantly the ability to pull off the idea, earlier this month, Scott Sandwich released the twenty nine track LP Obscure Music History (Vol. 1) (available on bandcamp) which digs through various eras, through individual personas each reflective of the style of music.

It would be possible to write a tome about each persona though handily faithfully created by Tom Hogan on a site dedicated to the project, which helpfully saves you needing to spend an hour or two reading here. Word also arrives of a follow up LP to arrive later in the year.

If you enjoy creative musicians who are able to submerge themselves in to a character and have the patience to absorb their objective, no matter how obscure and long winded that idea may take to resolve, as you have tears of laughter streaming down your face, whilst simultaneously enthralled by the pure skill, ability and patience  – then you are reading the right website – if you don’t, you are reading the wrong music review space.

It really isn’t possible to either select a track that is representative of the album, nor pick a highlight, with each track being fully absorbing – however here is a song that takes Scott Sandwich to the persona of Sonny Gilford Snr. with It’s 1955 All Over Again.

To give contextualisation for the text that has preceded – here is Scott in the persona of The Swooning with Boneshaker.

For more of the most most able and creative musicians from around the globe, I don’t think Emerging Indie Bands on Facebook is a bad place to start.

The roughly twenty two minutes – five track EP (available on bandcamp) takes the listener on a journey across varied landscapes allowing the audience to hang up their boots and lay awhile with the hazy shadows of electronics, instrumentation and vocal to drift around the head.

The closer – Waterhole – has a pronounced dub reference around which it revolves and is my pick of Young Satin.
