I Am Kloot
was the English band that started the acoustic-pop revival of 2001.
A Manchester trio led by vocalist/guitarist John Bramwell,
they played conventional (and mostly acoustic) folk-pop songs on
Natural History (2001), such as To You and Twist.
I Am Kloot (Wall Of Sound, 2003) was a bit more arranged, and boasted
at least two melodic gems: Three Feet Tall and especially
Life In A Day.
The rest was unbelievably monotonous.
Gods And Monsters (Echo, 2005) was a mature work by a trio that
had mastered its style, but, again, a chronic dearth of innovation
meant that only a few songs
(Over My Shoulder, No Direction Home,
Avenue Of Hope) stood out from the black and white broadcast.
The piano-based instrumental Hong Kong Lullaby was, in fact, the most
intriguing track on the album, a welcome antidote to
Trapped inside that mediocrity, the band on
The Sky At Night (2010) only found enough strength to mumble
the trotting showtune-style rant Fingerprints
and the John Denver-ian elegy Northern Skies.
