Dollboy Plans For a Modern City
- Words: Brock Phillips
- Label: Different Drummer
Resplendent in all its languorous glory, Dollboy's Plans for a Modern City aspires to a place in the pantheon of ambient music on par with classics such as Global Communications' 76:14 or The KLF's Chill Out. And while it falls short of that mark, it does so only by the slightest of margins. Luminous synth melodies, shimmering slide guitar riffs, matching piano couplets and muted trumpet refrains all play a part-you'd be hard-pressed to guess this could be the work of a live band without envisioning the four-piece slumped over their instruments on stage in turn. Navel-gazers take note. This record is your call to lie down and be counted amongst Dollboy's fans.
