New solo album from the self-styled fresh prince of HILAIR.
The thing to note is the billing. No ‘&’. This is Lord Graney alone, other than consort Clare Moore on various percussiony things, and occasional guitar embroideries from Nick Harper – son of the near-legendary Roy. The songs’ subject matter is his usual observer’s musings on the human condition and worldview, but presented here as quieter conversations – sometimes in a highway servo café (Country Roads, Unwinding) or, as in The Old Docklands Wheel, perhaps a ‘60s coffee house beat poet overheard down the hall.
