If you're a frequent reader of my pathetic musings, then it's most likely that you assume I'm some bitter fuck that longs for the days of the past and find most contemporary music to be an exercise in posturing and pretending to like hip records. And you'd be right. If I had a time machine I'd be gone in a second. But there are some moments that make me think the future might hold some potential. And this dude is definitely someone who piques my interest. They guy sounds kinda like Nick Cave, in that he's got this semi-bluesy croon style that is emotive but not unhinged. Pair that with some pretty stripped down electronics and a drum machine and you've got a winner. i think everything this guy has put out is worth owning. And he seems to be quite the gentleman too. Go buy his shit, or buy him a drink if you live near him.
