09 Jun AMP Review: The Bonnymen “Moyne Road”
New to Music Synch Licensing from Ireland
The Bonnymen are on fire, but don’t worry, no need for the fire department just yet. These guys sure know how to rope you in, and part of their repertoire of tricks is to layer their output with tracks that compliment and wake each other. On this new CD they open with a Fleet Foxes sound on “Kottayam” and then roll into a frisky joy soaked jig with “D/C”. After which you get treated to a duet that reminds one of a Maureen Tucker/Lou Reed staple although laced with a Celtic tint in “Roads,” before jigging it up again. This method is repeated with new variations throughout most of “Moyne Road” ensuring you are kept not only twirling high in the air, on your toes, but also fluttering and swooning in parts. The CD is full of really interesting synch material almost for whatever type of project you might have in mind, so come give ‘em a whirl on our player.
