Editorial Reviews

'Shedding Skin' is the manifestation of a new challenge, of fresh thinking, and a brave confident stride into previously uncharted waters. Ten songs that embrace, unite and narrate observations that are designed to sit beside each other through bright peaks and dark shallows. Unlike his previous albums, 'Shedding Skin' was recorded with a traditional live set up with what has become his touring band; Joe Newman on guitar, bass player, John Calvert and John Blease on drums. The self-produced album also features guest vocals from Nadine Shah, Etta Bond, Melanie de Biasio, Lucy Rose and MaxA mo Park's Paul Smith, a collection that sets a new precedent as his very best work yet.

This is definitely the LP of the year. ...a bit of massive attack, a bit of faithless, a bit of tame impala !
When I first heard this I nearly turned it off because I thought it was some crappy Rap music, but the instrumentation and tunes weren't Rap. ...and the Vocals were crazy... The guy says ''aah" after every word !!!
OMG... This stuff KILLS. It's like a pair of Converse High Tops for your EARS !!!
So cool with a touch of Brit in the vocals... some hot Bond Chick type duet vocals.. . . . The tunes are Great ! I can't hear them enough.
There's really nothing else out there even like this and it's so so fresh and new. it's FUN. ....the lyrics are the best ever. it's phenominal !!!
I bought all the old stuff too, but it's not as catchy. This one is a STRONG 10 !!! This coming from a guy who likes Prog music !
Get it. for sure

For album number three, UK artist Ghostpoet veers into indie rock territory and sounds very much au fait. Born Obaro Ejimiwe, of Nigerian parentage, his previous releases were critically acclaimed electronic beat-driven affairs. The aptly titled "Shedding Skin" still finds him using his spoken/drawled baritone delivery, backed this time by a nervy and moody indie soundscape matching the weighty subject matter.

Opening cut "Off Peak Dreams" is a skeletal groove touching on homelessness. "Yes I Helped You Pack" with bleak-sounding guitars touches on a turbulent marriage, with Ghostpoet and vocalist Etta Bond muttering verses like "I got the curtains drawn... Think of the kids... Pack your bags just leave", fraught with tension.

"X Marks The Spot" is sunnier sounding with vocalist Nadine Shah adding a sultry spark to the chorus. The title track is spare and bluesy with quivery guitars and the chorus "You think you know me, you never know me... Simmer down".

Everything stands out, from the Bowie-channeling ballad "Be Right Back, Moving House", "That Ring Down The Drain Kind Of Feeling" a menacing trip hop-sounding piece touching on pain at a former lover's new found joy - "I'm back where I started" goes the despairing chorus by Nadine Shah, the bouncy "Sorry My Love, It's You Not Me" with a spine-tingling bass riff and a verbose delivery from Ghostpoet, the pleasantly discordant "Better Not Butter", the acoustic "The Pleasure In Pleather" with spontaneous sonic bursts, to the closing chilly piano ballad "Nothing In The Way" which builds gradually to a cinematic climax.

Jangly angular riffs, spaceous effects, intricate layering, and THAT voice, Ghostpoet proves on this album to be an artist unencumbered by genre and scope.
