DOWNLOAD: LANDy - BFF!
Actors + music = flop. That's the rule. Flop. It's not even unwritten, 'cause I just wrote it. The equation is as old as God, the sun and maths itself, but get this: Adam Goldberg's new album is a fine, fine piece of work. You may recall Goldberg sharing a flat with Chandler on Friends or in Saving Private Ryan getting stabbed by Nazis, but here, as LANDy, no such discomforts are endured: debut album Eros and Omissions a stately procession through the avant-pop heavens. Most of the deities encountered during "BFF!" are English - there's a withered sting in his cadence that betrays a love of Bowie, while The Beatles' plaintive strangeness is also smeared throughout like wine from sour grapes. Bowie and The Beatles weren't averse to learning their lines, of course - one of the highest compliments you can pay to Goldberg and to Eros and Omissions is that at no point does it feel like an act.
