Fort Lauderdale – Pretty Monster

The 2001 debut Time Is Of The Essence by Steve Webster and Toby Jenkins aka Fort Lauderdale was an unexpected lysergic treat, drawing on ’60s whimsy and smooth Air-like pop. This marks a move away from the arch electronica of the debut and introduces more guitars, echoing The Squire Of Somerton’s Transverberations solo LP of last year. It’s loveably unhinged, with several tracks carrying an unexpected heaviosity.
