Richard Hawley's soft but always commanding voice is the centrepiece of 'Lowedges', a record of gentle, carefully crafted chamber pop that brings together Wilco-esque drumming, country twang and an almost ambient approach to making rock 'n' roll. With his brooding and crooning, along with all the musicians ornamenting him, Hawley recalls artists such as Bill Fay.

- Lowedges by Richard Hawley
7/10 Penrith Steve 14th November 2014
“Lowedges” starts with more of an indie-rock approach than its predecessor “Late Night Final”. The production is bigger and Hawley allows his glorious crooning to stretch a little further. “Run For Me” has more of a dramatic execution similar to the reformed Echo & The Bunnymen. “Darlin” has the understated grace of his debut with added pedal steel adding a country vibe. “I’m On Nights” is the best song, similar in style “Baby, You’re My Light”. He ends the album with a bit of that good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll balladry with the beautiful “The Nights Are Made For Us”.
