David Shrigley And Various
Worried Noodles (Tomlab)
The concept was cute, Glasgow artist Shrigley writes the words, scores of musicians – 39 of them! – from David Byrne to Franz Ferdinand to Deerhoof supply the music. The results vary wildly, from harmonious folks plucking to winsome electro to boisterous pop. The commonality is that most have picked up on the warped sense of reality and fun borne out of Shrigley’s art. Like his books, you’re bound to find something here that leaves you cold while others you’ll cherish forever.
