Rudi Zygadlo burst onto the scene with GREAT WESTERN LAYMEN, which takes elements of dubstep and gives sets them against retro synths, as with the opener, "Manuscripts Don't Burn" or the long 80s washes and wobbles of "Something About Faith. A strange but intriguing album. Reply Notify me Helpful.
This is the kind of album that you really want to like, filled with interesting noises and textures, and alternately funky and forbidding rhythms. But it makes you work to like it, which reflects either a refreshing unwillingness to pander or an example of arrogant overreaching, take your pick. Whichever verdict you render, there's no questioning the creativity and adventurousness of Rudy Zygadlo's musical vision.
A restless, constantly twitching record, Laymen bursts with the frenetic energy of a young, talented producer throwing his hand at a myriad of styles and influences. Bending with efforless ease from fractured R&B to abstract pop to bass-wobble steppa' grooves to weird classical Venetian-Snares movements and blasts of brass noise. A busy, rewarding album for fans of Hudson, Aphex, Bass Clef.

Great Western Laymen’s gait is not a club step, let alone a half-step or a 2-step, and its aesthetic is geared far more toward intuitive songwriting than body movement. Most notably, a good majority of the songs feature honest-to-goodness lyrics, and the compositions are edified with careful bricklaying fortitude rather than a naturalist flow. Still, while this formula proves exhaustive, it doesn’t entirely ruin Great Western Laymen. The album is such a unique work of craftsmanship that one can’t help admiring it, even if you don’t necessarily want to put it on again any time soon. A song like Laymen’s Requiem seems to take all the vibrant bits from '80s schlock (the twinkly opening of Kyrie, the tremolo strums of Eye of the Tiger, et a. and ping-pong them against each other to turn the tropes into something frighteningly new.
Glaswegian Rudi Zygadlo toes this line as he incorporates his own idiosyncratic, androgynous vocals into eccentric dubstep-leaning music. If James Blake is this scene’s civilized crooner, then Zygadlo is its glam rock singer, adorned in ridiculous outfits singing equally ridiculous songs. That feeling of absurdity is at the core of Great Western Laymen, Zygadlo’s debut LP, released on the venerably weird Planet Mu imprint. Laymen actually makes for a very accurate microcosm of what might be considered the Planet Mu sound in 2010: excessively colourful, exaggerated, playful, and unique. The album begins with the reserved ‘Manuscripts Don’t Burn’, with a tenuous vocal melody that barely holds itself upright while synths circle excitedly around each pivot point like glowing fireflies. It’s this sense of exaggerated movement that paradoxically keeps the album afloat while pulling it under.
