6/10 Clinton Staff review, 14 May 2014
Who can resist the dulcet chimes of the common or garden banjo? Not me. Its pluckery enlivens this standard singer songwriter fayre from this ex Clayhill bloke who has collab'd with Shane Meadows. Its nice folky gear that gets itself on the right side of the Mumfords and Del Amitri with its busy bar room folky melancholy. The flip is darker and slightly Tom Waits-y. Struggling with his voice, its a bit pleading and gravelly for me but the arrangements show some ambition and an attention to detail. For fans of the film 'Once'. Ian loves this, should have given it to him.
