Album Review | Self Release | Review by Allan Wilkinson
Kurt Wood takes to several locations around London to put together his new EP under the guise of Bug Bear. Neither a bug nor a bear, but something in between, this young singer songwriter’s distinctive vocal style is enhanced by a breezy guitar style throughout, from the gentle restless spirit of the multi-seasonal “Milestones” to the Steely Dan groove of “Gullible You”. takes us to another place altogether. With the help of a handful of musicians, notably Luke Yates, who not only provides the violin on both “Milestones” and the EP opener “Workhouse and Hatchet” but also co-produces, Dockroyd Nights provides a glimpse into Bug Bear’s slightly curious world.
Choice Track: Gullible You (NSV 504)
