As a music-nerd like myself, you’ll be sat there for the first couple of songs trying to figure out how everything is achieved but you’ll shortly cave in, give up and just enjoy the music for what it is as he’s so quick to follow, it’s easy to be left behind.
The title for the show is explanatory, Beardyman creates an album in an hour, using suggestions from the crowd for the song titles and genres. He’ll go to areas of music you didn’t no exist with song titles you’d never be able to think up, it’s certainly a journey throughout the hour.
The in-depth knowledge into all the music genres is also mind boggling. People shouting out the most abstract forms of music genres and him being able to detail to the audience exactly what they were.
Surprisingly, the show is also very comical. Beardyman does not hold back to go near touchy issues and the audience rewards him for taking this risk by going along with it.
It’s something to listen to Beardyman on Soundcloud or YouTube through your headphones or speakers, but to see him live one of Edinburgh’s biggest venues with a quality sound system should not be missed.
Beardyman is performing “One Album Per Hour” at the Pleasance Courtyard until Monday 17th August 2015 at 23:15. For more information including tickets, click here.
