Stuart Moxham & Louis Philippe - The Devil Laughs

TINY GLOBAL PRODUCTIONS

Much has been written about Stuart Moxham's first band, Young Marble Giants, and its small, perfect catalogue, which contained roughly two-dozen songs, nearly each one a perfect gem. The Devil Laughs is as out of its time as Colossal Youth was - its subtle but immediate beauty, devoid of “rock”, is a recording best understood in the light of those obscure ground-breakers who inspired it - the faux barbershop vocals of Smile-era Beach Boys, the studio lustre of Tom Wilson’s work with Simon & Garfunkel, a dash of The Swingle Sisters and French chanson - along with enough hints of Young Marble Giant’s modernist folk abstraction to satisfy longtime fans.
