Stranded in Departures


AN IMPULSE to up sticks from London to New York was the inspiration behind John Garrison's new album Departures - which is a surprise listening to the music.
Because former Budapest frontman Garrison's meticulously-constructed orchestral indie doesn't do anything that sounds spur of the moment on this, his second solo album.
For despite a few exceptions - the rocky Footprints and the unexpected disco hybrid Rendezvous - the tracks are stifled with over-production.
This means that Departures is filled up with plodding sub-Embrace tracks which frankly, I can take or leave.
