“The best music, you can seek some shelter in it momentarily, but it’s essentially there to provide you something to face the world with.” – Bruce Springsteen Since 2010 When The Gramophone Rings has been giving its readers hand-selected nuggets of musical goodness. According to The Guardian we are “a site eschewing snobbery while seeking out the best new music”, which is pretty accurate.

My first comment is that the track is too long. I think there is a really interesting 3 and a half minute pop song in here that somewhere along the lines just gets a bit lost. Ending up at five minutes is too long. I like the vocals and the repetitive, needling synth though.
Really enjoyed this. The instrumentation was dynamic and kept things interesting throughout, especially the more background wind/horn stuff. The voice is rich and world-beaten, which adds another great dimension. I'm not a massive blues guy so to be totally honest this doesn't sound much different to ALOT of blues stuff I've heard previously, but I did enjoy it.
