Utopia Defeated is the debut album from D.D Dumbo, the guise of Castlemaine's Oliver Hugh Perry. Super imaginative, free flowing pop jams all structured out of a one man set up. Live there are loop pedals and stacks of effects, but on the LP he's committed a crystalline and very perfect take of some off kilter songs. Plenty of experimentalism and it really goes off into it's own headspace; the hook here is that it plays out through tightly controlled pop sensibilities, super addictive listening. Oh, then there is his voice, stunning vocals... some really special moments.
