I’m kind of on the fence with Patrick Wolf.
I can’t listen to any of his records in their entirety, but for some reason I can’t stay away. Some of his stuff is totally brilliant, but the other stuff irritates me and kind of embarrasses me to listen to at times. His new album The Bachelor will be out later this year, and I have to say… I am kind of excited for it. A little hesitant, but excited.
I appreciate the risks he takes with each release and the ability to cross through multiple styles/genres. The Bachelor sounds like it will continue along the same lines… only this time he’s dipping his hands in the hardcore pot. There’s even a self-described “metal track” on the record! This intrigues me. But what intrigues me even more about this album is the guest appearance from Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton. What? Who saw that one coming?
While I think the pairing is a little strange, it sort of makes perfect sense. I mean, if you think about it… they’re basically the same person. Both are British, seem frighteningly intelligent, a little weird… OK, really weird… sort of have the same hair, and when I found these eerily similar photos of the two, well… it sort of creeped me out.
