Editors’ Notes

Gotye's fans are a patient bunch. The Belgium-born (and Melbourne-raised) musician also known as Wally de Backer took a lengthy five years between 2006’s Like Drawing Blood and 2011’s Making Mirrors. During this half-decade, Gotye was making music with Aussie indie-pop trio The Basics. Here, the minute-long title track opens as Gotye whisper-sings into a lo-fi filter over spacy drones, sounding a lot like Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce. The following “Easy Way Out” plays for twice as long and makes good use of '60s-style fuzz guitar, tambourine, and bombastic drum parts before his falsettos in the chorus recall a young Beck Hansen. “Somebody That I Used To Know” is a dazzling standout single; Gotye duets with New Zealand R&B singer Kimbra, who lends her velvety voice on this quirky, catchy breakup song. The more haunting “Smoke and Mirrors” contrasts orchestral accouterments with a big, boomy tribal rhythm as Gotye’s melodies intertwine with those of a vintage keyboard. The uplifting “In Your Light” is another gem with upbeat handclap rhythms, blasting horns, and hints of gospel.
