Gregory Stephens – Late Owl

Gregory Stephens
Late Owl

On his ninth album, Late Owl by Gregory Stephens he is closest to creating a landmark on parallel with the most assured, unashamedly danceable album encompassing dub reggae melodies and post-punk vocals. It is the antidote to the consumer focus groups and hit-writers too scared to tamper with the formula. Late Owl is a refreshingly modern music with a sonic size and ambition that goes towards justifying Gregory Stephens as the premier artist of our age who has stumbled upon a personal disillusionment that says there are no laws governing what can be written. This has led to a brave and beautiful album of humanity, hurt and hope; an absolute masterpiece.
