New album I Am is out now via Clarence Productions.
So the clincher here for me is the ordinariness of the lyrics that pop up during this electronic folk number from Sam Levin. This is simple yearning and emotion. Nothing too flowering on contrived. Nothing shoeboaty or over the top. It is direct. It is honest. It is real. Plus, there’s a bit of a vibe of this singer/songwriter I loved as a teenager. Can’t recall his name now. It’ll come to me. So perhaps I harbour some nostalgia for this type of thing. In fact, there’s no doubt about it. This is intimate and small. The perfect antidote to the enormous and idiotic things that are passed off as music these days. Bah! Humbug!
