♠   Following on from 2015’s Mercury~nominated Shedding Skin comes Dark Days + Canapés: a stunning and stimulating return which captures the sense of unease felt by so many in recent times. Angular guitars provide a post~punk backbone to the twelve tracks, which both propel Ghostpoet’s wry lyrical observations forward, and imbue the album — packed with razor~sharp social commentary — with an appropriately dystopic tone.

Review
Harriet Gibsone, Thursday 17 August 2017 22.30 BST / Score: ★★★
♠   Poet and musician Obaro Ejimiwe’s fourth album opens with a groan. So the mood is set for the rest of this exhaustingly bleak record; a grey~skied documentation of modern hot~button issues such as the refugee crisis (“No~one knows / How many / On the boat / Violent skies / Won’t tell us / Where to go”), social media (“Instagram your foes”) and modern dating (“we swipe left and figure it out”). Often its lyrics are a little on the nose, but musically it’s subtle, atmospheric — macabre Massive Attack ominousness on (We’re) Dominoes, tetchy, barbed post~punk on Freakshow, and aching elegance and eeriness on Dopamine If I Do, while Trouble + Me seems to rework the burgeoning reverence of Radiohead’s Street Spirit. Of course, Ghostpoet is merely exploring the world around him, but unlike Radiohead’s OK Computer, incredibly insightful and prophetic 20 years on, its unambiguous, unbridled hopelessness is wearing.   ♠   https://www.theguardian.com/
