6/10 Ian Staff review, 14 March 2013

Dharma Bums singer/songwriter Johnny Powell releases his debut album of desolate folk musings, ‘The Difficulties of...’ is full of tender Americana love songs and mountainside laments. With titles like ‘A Predictable Folk Song With An Unpredictable Purpose’ and ‘A Supernatural Carnival Of Demons’ you kind of know where he’s going with this album and I’m reminded of acts like Devendra Banhart and Tom McRae and their bitter folk sadness. ‘I’m So Sick’ has a nice country acoustic feel and ‘Many Nervous Faces’ begins with a twinkle of a music box. This is a very lonely sounding album; desolate and sparse and very melancholic!

With the addition of Ian Hinton-Smith of Alfie in his band this is quite a good line-up of musicians and this helps beef up the sound. ‘It’s Playtime’ features a little distorted guitar which gives it an almost claustrophobic sound. This is the perfect album for fans of sad and lonely music or if you’re just sad and lonely!
