Album Review

As the non-Arctic Monkeys half of the British supergroup duo the Last Shadow Puppets, '60s-centric singer/songwriter Miles Kane crafted folky, enigmatic pop songs heavily indebted to the dark, baroque chamber pop of Scott Walker. On his 2011 debut solo album, Colour of the Trap, Kane once again delves into the psychedelic era with a connoisseur's ear for detail and comes away with another similarly ambitious collection of bluesy psych- and folk-inflected rock. In fact, with fellow Puppet Alex Turner on board as co-composer for half of the tracks, the album could very well serve as a kind of follow-up to the Puppets' 2008 debut, The Age of the Understatement. To these ends, tunes like the menacing leadoff track, "Come Closer," the bluesy acid garage of "Inhaler," and the similarly snarling "Happenstance" sound like the best Oasis songs you never heard. In fact, Kane even makes the Oasis connection explicit as Noel Gallagher sings backup on the midtempo T. Rex dead ringer "My Fantasy." Elsewhere, the singer delves into the bubblegum meets Brit-pop-sounding "Rearrange" and delivers the moody, John Lennon-sounding romantic title track ballad.

Customer Reviews

One of those rare albums...

...where every song is perfect...I've been playing it non-stop for days now...the song-writing is top-notch and Miles' voice and guitar are a joy to listen to...the duet with Clemence Poesy ("Happenstance") is cool and funky...my favorite tune is "Quicksand" - brilliant little pop gem with clever lyrics...but there's not a bad song in the bunch...buy it and start groovin'!

Album of 2011

Miles Kane has proved he go it alone. Great songs, great production and a great voice. What more could you want from an album? Loads of 60's psychedelia sounds and hints of t.rex, the coral and the beatles. A perfect album in my humble opinion and a mega live act. Get guitar music back in the top 10 and buy it!

Great stuff

A great debut album which show that not all music nowadays is awful, but it's a shame there's been such little promotion. Definitely worth a listen - great riffs and melodies.

An indie pop veteran by his early twenties, singer/songwriter and young Paul McCartney look-alike Miles Kane has played a key role in the late-noughties alternative scene, both as a member of three bands and a solo artist. Born in 1986 in Merseyside, guitarist Kane formed the Little Flames with childhood friends at the age of 18, but after Eva Petersen and Mat Gregory left the band due to creative differences, he, along with bassist Joe Edwards and drummer Greg Mighall, continued as a three-piece...
