There’s a certain stereotype about surfers: bleach-haired, barefooted airheads always looking for their next kick of adrenaline – we’ve all seen Point Break. In many ways then Andrew Kidman is your atypical surf enthusiast. As a film maker he focuses on the cerebral side of things, capturing the beauty of coastal landscapes and uncovering stories of the real life people who surf them.
As a musician, operating under his Windy Hills moniker, he adopts a similar approach. Rich and expansive, Fall Of Planet Esoteria exposes a deep-thinking mind in constant oscillation. Stylistically the album covers tremendous ground from down-tempo blues (Song Of Many, Magnolia) to krautish post-rock (Cars) and Nick Drake-embossed folk (Is It By Chance, Apple Tree). Remarkably however, Kidman is able to bring all these eclectic strains of his vast inspiration under a single guiding, cohesive voice.
Much like Kidman’s films, Fall Of Planet Esoteria operates at a slow, meandering pace – there’s barely a kick of adrenaline on offer. And while this gives you plenty of time to take in what is a vivid aural landscape, it also at times makes it hard to engage with the music, making it the album’s biggest strength and greatest weakness.
