Daniel Agust Swallowed A Star
- Words: David Hemingway
- Label: One Little Indian
On the sleeve of his debut solo album, Daniel Agust wears sackcloth hemmed roughly with coarse string. It‘s presumably a significant statement of aesthetics from the former GusGus frontman, as he distances himself from cherished dancefloor soundtracks and toys with the kind of imagery evoked by epic Icelandic novels like Halldór Laxness‘ Independent People. Backing Agust‘s voice with strings ‘n‘ FX, Swallowed A Star is often lovely, if not quite as gratifying as releases by the singer‘s past collective.
