Dylan Leblanc-If The Creek Don’t Rise
I’ve just watched a film involving a fawn with a shady temperament and a man or at least a creature with skin akin to a man with no eyes. No prizes for guessing what the film is but, following 2 hours of mythical capers and intense emotion, Dylan Leblanc is the perfect antidote. I can’t think of many voices which flow so naturally and soulfully as Leblanc’s. The music is simple and almost as effortless as his voice, if ‘air’ had picked up acoustic guitars and a lap steel this is how ‘moon safari’ could have sounded. This is not to detract from the efforts of Leblanc, indeed I would be surprised if the aforementioned fawn could keep up his nervy enthusiasm/anger after a few spins of this record.
