Dempsey Sunrise Sunset
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: Output
Kieran "Four Tet" Hebden‘s rock band, Dempsey, sits squarely in the Gorillaz/Cornershop genre of genre-bending, hook-based pop. Hebden produced half the tracks, which seamlessly merge live and sampled elements. "Big Time" jumps from an East Indian riff to blues rock with layers of looped harmonicas and distorted flutes. When frontman Geoff McIntyre sings about doomed romance, you can‘t help but think the ladies left him because they couldn‘t believe a word he says. Perhaps the most disingenuous singer in rock, when he mentions trains or dry martinis, it‘s like he‘s never encountered these objects, only heard them mentioned on Rolling Stones records.
