Gotye Like Drawing Blood on LP + MP3 Download
On the back of the exuberant Northern Soul homage of "Learnalilgivinanlovin" and the intense yearning of Banana Boat Song-sampling "Hearts A Mess," the second Gotye album, Like Drawing Blood, quietly became something of an underground classic in Australia since its release in 2006.
Also voted iTunes UK's favorite album of 2008 and catching peoples' ears in Japan, Belgium, Holland and France, Like Drawing Blood is an adventure in genre-jumping alternative-pop that makes unlikely bedfellows out of morbid Bollywood-flavored pop, dub excursions wrapped around meta-song experiments and dramatic sample-tangos with Mancini-esque orchestral arrangements.
“Gotye is... a talented singer/songwriter/producer. His voice is precise yet malleable, running from smoothly soaring to roughly resigned, and his falsetto pierces like a light in the shadowy landscape of his music. At its best, Like Drawing Blood is memorable and captivating.” - Joe Tangari, Pitchfork
"The best cut'n'paste album since the Avalanches....Like Drawing Blood is a meticulously crafted mishmash that sounds thoroughly modern." - Sunday Times Culture
