Belgian eccentrics dEUS are back with a new album, Keep You Close, and without wishing to spoil my forthcoming review for Collapse Board, it’s their best yet.
This song, which features the Afghan Whigs’ Greg Dulli, is a classic grower. It’s certainly not the best track to show off the album’s diversity or eclecticism. It doesn’t demonstrate the rich variety of instruments on the album or the intricacy of some of the arrangements. As a way of showing off Keep You Close, it’s a very poor choice.
I just find it moving and it keeps going around in my head. If that’s not a good reason to pick it for my #musicmonday, I don’t know what is.
