A short but notable album, “Awesome” is the collaboration of Iain Shaw and the renowned artist, David Shrigley, as they ride along the tides of a simple, minimalistic sound. The songs drive into and explore a few interpretations of some common definitions. Through cute yet thought-provoking pictorial stories, the two present themselves as comfortable in their making of art and music. While Shrigley narrates thoughts through spoken-word tracks, Iain Shaw amiably sings over his acoustic guitar. Having a goodwill and friendly qualities, the new release can bring an agreeable sentiment to any sociable listener. So come, and have a listen.
