ASIDE -THE MELTING ICE CAPS- SELFISH BACHELOR
BSIDE-THE MELTING ICE CAPS- HOW TO APPEAR WELL-ADJUSTED
Lead track Selfish Bachelor is a swirling, oddly uplifting marriage of dirty guitars, pulsating electronica and perhaps the most candid lyric David has ever put his name to. Meanwhile, b-side How To Appear Well-Adjusted is chamber pop par excellence, with violins and accordions wrapped around a blackly comic guide to surviving daily life.
