Blanketship – Klangwunder / The Sound Of Fun Surrounds You

10-Aug-18

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Vintage jazz rock meets found sound DJ Thoughts Pretty good, forward thinking collage of lots of different sounds.

★★★☆☆ = Good! What’s it sound like? Multi-instrument female fronted alt-pop Thoughts An impressive debut with varied instrumentation creating layers of textures that draws from the best of female alt-pop.
