“Slowly Slowly Catchee Monkey”
(Out 22nd August 2011- Folkwit Records)
As the title suggests, ‘Slowly Slowly Catchee Monkey’ is a well thought out patiently planned album delivered with a refreshing innocence and humour. It’s pop music with a funky folky twist, it’s meaty with a chewy centre and shot through with a dry sense of humour, toasty warm vocals and all sorts of weird and wonderful sounds delivered via a vivid imagination.
Snippet is London born / Colchester based Johnno Casson with a little help from Dutch producer Wim Oudijk. Casson cut his teeth as lead singer of trip hop pioneers Deep Joy, working with the likes of Andrew Weatherall (Primal Scream), James Lavelle (UNKLE) and Adrian Sherwood (On-U-Sound). BBC 6 Music favourite Snippet has released 4 e.p’s between 2008-2011 that have garnered a great deal of critical acclaim and airplay.The debut album ‘Slowly Slowly Catchee Monkey’ is delivered with a sharp understanding of how to present modern electonica fuelled pop music in an original and interesting way. With added splashes of folk & funk this album offers light & shade that delivers on a number of levels with a refreshing & unique take on what life has to throw at you.
The songs on this deliciously delightful melting pot debut are observational, biographical songs about people in all their different guises; whether cold, warm, with a smile on their face or a glint in their eye, these are songs chock full of character. If you fancy something cheeky, squeaky and quite uniquey then throw on your shades, pull up a deckchair and dip your toe in!
