Latest submission to the playlist this week comes in from New Yorker Stephen Babcock.
With the arrival of his latest E.P "Fiction", it's been a hard choice to select just one track for the list - and definitely encourage listening from front to back, but today I'm show casing "Seersucker Dress" a personal favourite - I must say! If the rich vocals, harmonies and story telling don't melt your heart, the opening acoustic guitar and keys will.
Everything from the songwriting, through to production has been nailed perfectly, thus giving it all the makings of a radio ready Alt-Country Classic.
I'm sure you'll all relate with this.... But music can be an amazing trigger point for the human psyche, like the smell of perfume, a location, a memory from years gone by that you don't remember filing. Whether it's detailed or hazy, it's absurd what we recall at times. In the songwriters case, it's the body hugging seersucker fabric, the same fabric that initially caught his eye. I recall a particular break-up, I was devastated! My only recollection these days, is the distinct sound of a garden gate as I walked away for the last time.
