I’ve been sitting on this record for a few months now. I wanted to see if the immediate appeal lasted. I wanted to see if the thoughts and images it gave me developed and grew. I felt pretty reluctant to listen, post and move one. I was taken in by the crackling vinyl voice and guitars that are warmer than a garden campfire.
ALpha by E.C. Dawson sits comfortably aomngst The Tallest Man On Earth , Bon Iver and Willy Mason on my car dashboard in what I like to call the Summer driving section. Sometimes the lyrics take the centre stage sometimes the music, sometimes you find both interlocked, charging or drifting towards you in a few moments of the kind of music that are irresistible. At least to me.
Simple not not formulaic. Sharp and spontaneous but still reachable and immediate.
