Simon Raymonde - Blame Someone Else (1998) Retail CD
Blame Someone Else is Simon Raymonde's debut after the demise of the Cocteau Twins. For almost 15 years, post-punk warblers the Cocteau Twins practically defined--and constantly redefined--the very boundaries of ethereal, graceful indie-pop. When vocalist Elizabeth Fraser left in 1997, it seems bassist Simon Raymonde's destiny was to branch off the Cocteau's legacy in his own inimitably precious style through his own part-owned independent record company, Bella Union. Blame Someone Else is 12 tracks of tight, inventive alt-pop which predates the bittersweet, rolling homilies of The Pernice Brothersmore… and brings a keen understanding of electronic music along for the ride. Raymonde's voice is strong, heartfelt and more than enough to carry the likes of "It's A Family Thing" and "The Seventh Day", but just to show there's no hard feelings, Fraser pops up as a guest on "Worship Me" and ex-Cocteau Twin and Violet Indiana frontman Robin Guthrie adds pretty, chiming guitar to the tender "Muscle And Want". A handful of fine covers--see Scott Walker's "It's Raining Today" and Television's "Days"--fill out Raymonde's work nicely: this is a fine debut and proof that the Cocteau's split was not a bitter fracture, but a sweet new beginning. --Louis Pattison
