- The Doors Of Then by Tim Burgess
8/10 Mike Staff review, 16 January 2013
The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess has been keeping busy lately, with his O Genesis label putting out a succession of excellent records, his autobiography ‘Telling Stories’ selling strongly, and his grown-up solo album of warm psychedelic pop (with songwriting assistance/production by Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner and some guitar from buddy R Stevie Moore) garnering much positive attention.
Here’s the second single from said album. On the A side we’ve got ‘The Doors of Then’, the album’s title track of sorts, which is a warm breezy psych-pop ballad with breathy vocals and a bouncy mid-paced rhythm. Really nice. On the flip there’s an extended version of album track ‘Tobacco Fields’, a defeated-sounding number with subtle ambient swells, tinkling piano and deep, resonant vocals. It has a sad cinematic epic feel that reminds me of ‘Wake Up In New York’ by Craig Armstrong & Evan Dando mixed with a bit of the weary physicality of Sparklehorse or Lambchop. Both good and very different tracks then.
