Robin Guthrie

Everlasting

by John Bergstrom

28 November 2006

 

Guthrie follows up his recent Continental CD with this four-song EP, making a direct run at fans of Cocteau Twins, for whom he was guitarist/musical director. No surprise, then, that Everlasting sounds just like late-period Cocteau Twins minus Liz Fraser’s unintelligible vocals. The lush guitar textures and seductive, simple melodies are here, and it doesn’t even sound like Guthrie’s switched drum machines. Grand, often beautiful, and completely unnecessary.
