Country And North-Western



Tim Burgess, Charlatans frontman and 'nicest man in rock 'n' roll', has a solo album out called Oh No I Love You. It was written in collaboration with Lambchop's Kurt Wagner and is an unexpectedly pleasant, country soul surprise and much better than it should be. I don't make these claims lightly- it actually is rather good. It's recommended by Paul Weller as well- stamp of quality or kiss of death depending on your point of view I suppose. You can stream the whole thing here. After doing that (or more likely before) you can go here and get a Time And Space Machine remix of the song White for free (in exchange for your email address, which means you'll get emails from Tim or his team from now until the end of time/until you unsubscribe). The Time And Space Machine remix is good also- discofied, bouncy bass and horns and sweetly sung. Worth the email address exchange really.

Let's just not mention the hair eh?

Comment from a user at the Guardian's comment thread, re: hair (and album)-

'I've been waiting for a while for this and really wanted to like it. But now it's here, I'm disappointed: it's overlong, uneven and in parts utterly ridiculous. Maybe it'll grow on me.

The album's good, though. 1,3, 8 and 9 especially.'


Which made me chuckle.
