Hess is More is Mikkel Hess, not sure if that’s supposed to be a secret or not…? His new album is set to release in just a few days, October 11th to be exact, it’s titled “Creation Keeps the Devil Away”. A lot of people are taking the lazy way out and comparing it to genius Erlend Øye, which is way too easy but definitely can be heard. His soft voice and dancey folk beats will get you dancing in your highwater jeans, do people still say that? A little Who Made Who, a little Orange Juice, and throw in some margarita salt for good measure.
Hess is More is a first date must, put this in your car when you pick up your date and just wait for them to ask who this is as they groove along. It will instantly give you cool points and the conversation goes from there. If they know who it is then that’s just a sign of a long laster.
“Creation Keeps the Devil Away” is a sensual album that is good from start to finish, and is on it’s way to top of 2011 lists for me. Check out “Going Looking for the End of the World”, it’s my favorite track on this magical carpet ride.
