Hayden – Us Alone (2013)

Posted by on February 5, 2013 with No Commentsas

haydenHayden, his eventh album Us Alone finds a grown-up Hayden stripping down his arrangements to their core, relying on spare folk-rock instrumentation to support his increasingly astute and mature storytelling songs.Even with just eight tracks, Us Alone packs in volumes of highly personal reflections, told with a sense of poetry, humor, and awareness that sets the songwriter apart and explains the longevity of his career. Album opener “Motel” rides a haunted, syrupy rhythm reminiscent of the bare-bones drumming on Neil Young’s Harvest. The song’s low-lit feel doesn’t completely match up with its slowly unraveling lyrics, which eventually tell the story of a crying baby who will only be quieted by a midnight car ride. “Just Give Me a Name” is a story of infidelity, told from the chillingly calm perspective of the betrayed. At first the narrator doesn’t want any details except for a name, but as the song goes on, maybe an address or what time the guy gets off work might be helpful, too. These captivating story-songs are brightened by relatively subdued instrumentation, with so few extra elements in the mix that when the occasional harmonica or organ shows up, it feels monumental.

Ocean Colour Scene – Painting (2013)

Posted by on February 5, 2013 with No Commentsas

oceanEntitled Painting this collection of 14 new songs is released on Cooking Vinyl Records and was recorded over five weeks at Vada Studios in Warwickshire with produer Matt Terry. It s a sonic splash of colour reflecting eclectic influences ranging from Bert Jansch and Burning Spear to Bacharach and David. The album is a representation of all that is great about British rock; anthems, heartfelt ballads and weird, left-of-middle psychedelic wig-outs. Quite simply, Painting is another great record from British pop s most under-rated storytellers. As artistic statements go, it might just be their masterpiece.

Richard Thompson – Electric [Deluxe Edition] (2013)

Posted by on February 5, 2013 with No Commentsas

Richard’s decision to record the album at Buddy Miller‘s intimate home studio in Nashville, as Miller favors a speedy solution to recording, favoring vibe over perfection. As such, there’s atmosphere and air to spare on Electric — it’s music that breathes,never feeling suffocated — and there’s plenty of room for Thompson to spin out spiraling […]
