Gideon Conn - I Want You Around

Limited 10” release described on the press release as “a jazz funk infusion reminiscent of De La Soul having a tussle with Badly Drawn Boy”, you can see why Gideon Conn’s signed to Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly’s Mannequin Republic label. However, instead of coming across like a talented DIY multi-genre, multi-instrumentalist, this is more like a third rate Jamiroquai/Eminem hybrid. Any time you see the word ‘infusion’ the alarm bells should ring, and this is as bad as pressing the demo button on the Casio keyboard you had when you were 11 years old.
