Patrick Wolf – Lycanthropy

Composed between the ages of 11 and 18, Lycanthropy chronicles the emergence of Wolf both as an adult and as a mature musician. With an elegiac croon reminiscent of Erasure’s Andy Bell, Wolf pulls together influences as diverse as The Smiths, Pierre Boulez, Nico and Digital Hardcore for this suite of post-glitch laptop folk symphonies overlaid with viola, harmonium, accordion and clarinet. Sentimental, sincere and touching.
