Tim Bowness: Stupid Things That Mean The World
Clever music that keeps something in reserve.
Last year, Tim Bowness crowned a 25-year career with a tender, titanic masterpiece, Abandoned Dancehall Dreams. Only his second solo album, it distilled the best elements of his sterling work with No-Man and other collaborations, and draped his quietly forlorn vocals over music as big as an ocean. For many of us, it was one of the finest releases of 2014.
