HALF COUSIN - FANTASY BELT

30th July 2012

Half Cousin Fantasy Belt LP Cover Image of an old house on a dull cloudy day.

This is the second release in quick succession for Kevin Cormack on Spillage Fete Records. Fantasy Belt, this time created under his conventional nom-de-plume Half Cousin, is a sublime follow up to his 2011 hallucinogenic masterpiece, Harry Deerness. Fantasy Belt channels CAN into the economy of early Wire, sieved through Half Cousin's distinctive junk aesthetic. Cormack keeps his eclectic influences on a tight folky rein - the songs fevered yet lean, multi-layered yet simple, other-worldly, yet firmly rooted in the every-day and the mundane. As is evident in the previous Half Cousin releases, there is an obsessive, almost voyeuristic interest in places and people - the songs here evoke a mis-en-scene at the shadiest fringes of society.
