MUSIC REVIEW | Iggy Pop – Post Pop Depression (2016)

In a nutshell, Bored & Dangerous says: “The ingenuity never over shadows the bloke with his name on the album cover.”

It might be labelled as an Iggy Pop record, but Post Pop Depression is a supergroup effort. Backed by Josh Homme and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), as well as drummer Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys), the godfather of punk lets them take him in plenty of unexpected directions, and it pays off a lot more often than not. Homme’s desert durge influence is clear on opening track Break Into Your Heart, while the haunting, driving bass of American Valhalla lets Pop camp it up and indulge in some horror story telling that would be corny in the hands of almost anyone else.
