Music today came from the latest so hip nothing can go wrong four-piece Dry Cleaning and their debut album New Long Leg (2021). A band playing instrumentals with a girl talking over the top, sounds uninspiring but you know, it’s the attitude that works. Deadpan delivery, observational, philosophical, and mildly amusing despair.
Followed by Lucinda Williams‘ Good Souls Better Angels (2020), as deep and meaningful but American and more traditionally delivered but her world-weary vocals land a punch on the lyrics. I listened to this today because my mate Derek told me today about the new album, a tribute to Tom Petty which I immediately ordered but it’s not online yet. So I had a Lucinda craving. Great music if you like that kind of thing.
