Дин Блант / Dean Blunt // Каменный остров / Stone Island

Dean Blunt was recently in Moscow to play a concert: “Almost all of the time spent in Russia, I spent on this record, so I want it to remain in Russia, lost in Google translation. Since it was conceived here, it will remain here”.

This album, along with his last, The Redeemer, further suggests that Hype Williams is over due to Dean’s / Roy’s relationship with Karen / Inga breaking down. The album is even more lonely than The Redeemer, but Roy has been practising his violin and cello which were first heard on that album.

An ‘epigraph’ was provided with the album which is downloadable only from Russia’s Афиша website here:

Her: «What’s wrong?»
Him: «I got issues»
Her: «We all got issues»
Him: «… yeah, but mine are so fucking cliché»

Hear one of the most haunting tracks here:
