Baxter Drury

Baxter Drury, Floorshow
LP, Rough Trade

Baxter Drury is the son of the late Ian Drury, a much loved fixture of the UK scene in years past. Remember Rhythm Stick? Thankfully, Baxter's schtick is quite different from his father so we don't have to treat what he does as an In Memoriam and make politely dismissive noises while dredging up anecdotes from the eighties.

This is pretty nice stuff. If "English", in this part of the woods, consists of high mixed vocals over thin guitar, then this is more American with some Moby-like craftings of instruments and voice and an extended palette.
