The Listening Club - 12th June 2016

Howdy folks,

Hope existence is not proving too much of a drag for you all. Focus here weatherwise is back on the UK for me, as the traditional annual sport of predicting Glastonbury weather is in full effect. Currently looking pretty good, not boiling but not wet, which would be ideal, haven't had to leave the wellies at home for a long, long time. Here's hoping it stays that way. Gig wise, the braincells are still recovering from a Shellac / Venetian Snares double whammy. Onward, but gently...

Back in #LC world, last week @holette was in the batonchair, chilling the evening out quite nicely with Mark Pritchard's "Under The Sun". Many thanks to Sarah for the pick and for sailing the frisbaton across to @wojsvenwoj, who is here with this week's intro...

"Last week's pick reminded me of someone whom I hadn't thought about in a very long time: a lesser-known English singer-songwriter who I first came across while doing the college radio thing in the late 80s. He achieved a small level of success, mostly outside his own country, attracted some major lavel attention and then my radar turned elsewhere.

I was reminded of him for what will become obvious reasons, did a little research in the stacks of my local library-I-mean-Google and found that, after stepping away form the music world for some time, he'd released a couple records in the past two years. Gave them a listen and, don't you know it, they're not half-bad!

So, today's pick is the first of them, from 2014. Enjoy!"
