I've never come across Al Duvall before but the other boys here assure me that he's 'a talent to be reckoned with', 'the next big thing' and 'some bomb-ass shit'. On the evidence of 'Recluses Unite' I reckon they've only gone and talked some sense for once in their hopeless lives. Sounding like he's singing these brilliantly witty ditties from a 1920s New York speakeasy, these songs somehow manage to sound like a relic from a bygone era both in the recording style and the quant comedy-folk wordplay but retain a modern sensibility in some of the humour.. I imagine you'd have had a job getting away with saying some of this stuff back in the prohibition era and if you did there's not a chance on Earth you'd have had it recorded. Really there's little to say about this from a musical point of view as superficially it's just a guy singing some songs to a sparse backing of guitars or banjos but the lyrics are the key thing, they really are superb and frequently completely hilarious. Probably the best thing to do if you can't make your mind up is to have a look at some of his lyrics online and imagine them delivered in a charming, deadpan drawl. This is excellent, excellent stuff and if you're not entertained from the start of this collection to the finish there sure ain't no blood in yr veins, boy!
