Re: What song are you listening to right now?

So, this thread asks "What song are you listening to right now", not if like it or not, right?

This popped into my twitter feed first thing in the morning, post twitted  by Elon Musk. Been admiring him and what he does with his time and money, been watching his latest turmoils closely, especially since this August. https://twitter.com/elonmusk

Steve Grand's "sophomore" album Not The End of Me...

Waited a little while to get my hands on this one - okay, I’ll ‘fess-up, I missed the release date and then had to wait a while for my customary signed copy as Steve was out on tour.

So after something like a 3 year wait for the (often tricky) sophomore album what have we got then? Well, certainly a different beast for the ebullient (dare I say “coming out”) All American Boy. This is a more mature and reflective album; as the cover suggests, darker, though not Southern Gothic dark. In all, it’s a very honest statement by Steve that despite the success and sudden fame of being catapulted from “local” to national celebrity, all in the garden has not been as rosy as may have been expected. It would seem that it’s strained a deep relationship to breaking point, drinking and teetering on self-loathing and an overall feeling of loneliness.

However, before you stick your head in the oven, there is hope in this album as well as defiance and the determination to turn things back around, as the title track Not The End of Me tells; flipping a finger (or sticking 2 fingers up - depending which side of the Atlantic you’re on) at the mistakes of the past. For me, the other two stand-out tracks are the beautiful Anti-hero and Good To See You; I also really like Don’t Let The Light In, but the bonus acoustic piano take.

Not that there are any filler tracks, lead-off single Walking has a great bounce to it, belying it’s “break-up” subject matter. Ain’t it Something has a light reggae motif running under it as a break from the Country Steve’s best known for. Wait around though and then, You or The Music sees the Country roots crashing back in, giving the album a great lift.

If I had one “niggle” about the album, on the more “pop” numbers, Steve’s vocals sound a little too close to Will Young; no fault in that, just a case of personal preferences. However this is a bold album as it honestly shows what a great philosopher once said - “it’s a big leap from frayed cuffs to frayed nerves”, that rewards may come a cost, which has been Steve’s journey; so far….

Re: What song are you listening to right now?

R.H.R. - Mahogany Drift

R.H.R. is a "collective" between Troy Redfern, Jack J Hutchinson & Mike Ross, much in the mould of the original Royal Southern Brotherhood; just as good, except with a British twist. This is their debut album, three tracks penned by each, and each bringing their own toys into the other's sandbox.

I'll say more shortly on their own thread as I was at their kick-off gig at Hartlepool on Saturday but wanted to get the ball rolling here as I know more people tend to look in on this thread. I sincerely believe RHR are going to be BIG next year.

Itchy Teeth - Electric Paint

Oh this is well off the prairie; Itchy Teeth are a Dutch foursome, Charlie, Oli, Xav & Big M and their sound is a particular brand of psychedelic pop rooted somewhere between The Beatles & The Beach Boys but going as far out as Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

May be an acquired taste but with song titles like Adopting a Spacechild and Brian Wilson Is Still Alive, you know you’re gonna come away smiling….

Mike Ross - Jenny’s Place

If you haven’t guessed, Mike Ross is the 3rd part of RHR, so seemed only fair that since I have the albums of the other two scallywags, that I check out Mike’s wares. Wouldn’t you know it, he’s originally from the Durham area, but relocated down south somewhere. Jenny’s Place is his most recent album, released this Spring, and builds on his return album, Spindrift.          .

First thing about this album, it’s two-in-one; 9 new studio tracks and 6 “live” tracks with his band at The Latest in Brighton a couple of years back. This newer album boasts a full and muscular set of tracks. The textures found here are thick and sinewy, from the highway rolling ‘Dakota Red’ and the agonized blues of ‘Dark Powder’ to the Petty-esque choruses and melodic structure of ‘Jenny (Sun Goes Down)’ and the swagger of ‘The Big Picture’ or ‘Baby, I Love You’.

The live tracks, obviously mostly from Spindrift give a hint at the sort of heart-wrenchin’  road distilled performances Ross has become noted for; a joy to listen to but my advice would be to play both parts of the album separately since they don’t balance each other.
