Harry James Angus Little Stories
Harry James Angus is pretty much one of the best musicians to ever live; his vocals are incredible, his trumpet and guitar playing are brilliant, and he proves here that his songwriting and lyrics are completely top-notch. I can't find a fault in his musicianship at all - he's too fantastic.

Keaton Henson Dear...
Keaton Henson The Lucky EP
Keaton Henson Birthdays
Keaton Henson Romantic Works
"Romantic Works, Henson's third album, sprang from a series of quiet instrumental pieces he wrote. As their numbers mounted, he decided to learn the arts of orchestration and arrangement, even though he couldn't read or write music, taking inspiration from Arvo P?rt, Philip Glass, Henryk Gorecki, Edward Elgar, Ralph Vauhan Williams and Saint-Sa?ns. The result is a collection of songs from cello, woodwind and piano, which he describes as "bedroom classical" ? since he recorded the whole thing in his bedroom ? with layers built using found objects and charity shop instruments." Didn't see this coming, but Keaton doesn't seem to want to remain in one place and that's an admirable sentiment, even if this album strongly lacks his brilliant vocals and lyrics. Definitely a pleasant surprise.

Hammock Asleep in the Downlights
Some slightly awkward guest vocal appearances, and with the presence of the instrumental versions on the Chasing After Shadows outtakes, it seems that the guests were brought in to do vocal tracks over the existing songs with no input into their creation. This probably explains the fact that the two don't quite gel. Nevertheless the two Hammock-only songs are quality and Parkers Chapel may be one of their greatest

Definitely a step up from Welcome Home Armageddon, but still far from their best work. The "screamed" vocals sound a little tired at a few points throughout the album - perhaps Matt should stick to clean vocals. But instrumentally quite an accomplishment.

Keaton Henson Metaphors
The title track is probably the closest Keaton's come to writing a happy track, with some clever wordplay about some well-worn singer-songwriter cliches while still retaining that distinctive downbeat vibe. Judging Books could fit right on Dear with a very slow tempo and some beautifully downcast lyrics.

Don't let "Iddy Biddy" fool you, cos that song fucking sucks and is probably the worst thing the Used have ever done. If you can look past that and the mediocre "Quixotica", there's some cool stuff on here, specifically "Thought Criminal" and the title track. As for "Tethys", well, it was a cool idea, but it probably won't ever be listened to more than once.
