8/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 22nd June 2015
On Richard Buckner’s self-titled album, his second release from 1996, he manages to balance folk and blues influences with grizzled Americana. His warm yet almost desperate voice gives a sense of desolation to the songs. The songs are starkly arranged, just voice and acoustic guitar. On opener “On Travelling” he plays the guitar almost like a mandolin whilst the lyrics tell a story of someone left behind. “Boys, The Night Will Bury You” has a gospel-ish melody and is reminiscent of the music on Scud Mountain Boys first couple of albums.
“A Goodbye Rye” is less delicate than what came before, full-bodied strums of the guitar and a heartfelt vocal. “Jewelbomb” is a good example of the quiet/loud dynamic he creates with such simple tools and “Li’l Wallet Picture”, like the opening track is another good example of his Americana-drenched folk.
