1- Dances With Wolves “South East” 2002.
In retrospect, it may not have been such a great idea to name your solo recording project Dances with Wolves
. After all, if you look up Masters of the Hemisphere
in Wikipedia, it inexplicably contains a link to the Kevin Costner Best Picture winner. What’s the connection? More details
2- Delta “Slippin Out” 2000.
Delta formed in 1993 from the ashes of cult Sarah Records indie band The Sea Urchins, the core lineup consisting of brothers James and Patrick Roberts on guitar and vocals. More details.
3- Graham “Never, And Maybe Not Even Then” 2001
Adopting a lyrical style that avoids psychological generalities in favour of second- and third- person narrative, Graham nevertheless manages to establish a very personal mood that is often tinged with sadness, morbidity, and dislocation. The whole effect is compounded by tunes that tend to linger in the mind, leaving the listener strangely uplifted. More details
4- Plush “More You Becomes You” 1998
On Plush’s debut album, Liam Hayes boldly embraces the abstract guise of a ’60s singer-songwriter stuck in the late 1990s. Accompanied solely by his own piano playing, Hayes’s vocal performances initially sound more like rough pop blueprints than a finished body of work. With repeated listenings, however, the man’s innate gift for great melodies becomes apparent and his songs take on a vaguely familiar feel. More details
