Wouter De Backer (what a brilliant name, eh?), a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumentalist best known by the name Gotye, has been putting out this kind of record out for a few years. 2011’s Making Mirrors is his third solo release, and both the songs he composes as well as the timbre of his voice can change dramatically from song to song within a record. The unifying theme throughout it all is the creative arrangements he gives them, as well as the smart lyrics. He’s been around for a bit, but is just now beginning to get recognition from the gatekeepers of hipsterdom (cough, cough, Pitchfork).
