Reviews of Lullabies for the 21st Century. Debut Album of Duncan Maitland. Released January 2011.
This album delivers on its claim that listening to it is like "a trip through the acid tinged English foothils...." The classic influences from bands like The Beatles, Beach Boys and XTC, mixed together into a tasty British Pop dish. Lullabies for the 21st Century earns a solid 4 out of 5 stars!
"...he’s finally released his solo debut album, and if there’s a better floating-down-stream pop record this year then I’ll eat my kaleidoscopic hat". Tony Clayton-Lea, Irish Times review 2011 of Lullabies for the 21st Century****
"Pugwash and XTC collaborator Duncan Maitland brings a sixties sunshine pop brilliance to his debut album. Awash with a songwriter's dedication to craft, sighing melodies and a voice that recalls Jason Falkner at his most dreamily bucolic, 'Lullabies for the 21st Century' mines a fabled seam of power pop and Beatlesque balladry wonderfully". **** ...Alan Corr.
