About this item

Eleven gorgeous, late night, storytelling songs by the erstwhile Pulp and Longpigs guitarist. Hawley croons lovelorn words which evoke the late 50s in their charm and sweetness. Musically it's pretty and melodic, acoustic guitar ballads, lushly fleshed out with lapsteel, vibes, Mellotron and shimmery, echoey electric (guitar). Warm, poetic and inviting, this is a beautiful record and a balm for aching hearts everywhere!

Originally released in 2003, this was his second album, or third if you include his self titled mini-LP too. Although it follows a similar late night, love lorn style as his previous releases, it's musically and atmospherically a much bigger sound and hinted at what was to come with it's stunning follow-up Coles Corner.
