Richard Hawley

Richard Hawley, Coles Corner
Single, Mute

Sweet tones, a softly crooning voice, and an orchestral background might seem just right for some circumstances but somehow take on an ironic or kitch component when they come from someone like Mute, even if the publishing is owned by BMG.

The second track, "I'm Absolutely Hank Marvin", starring the Hank himself, absolutely underlines the kitch feeling. Both are nice tracks though, and Hank's slow tunefulness could have you smooching in a corner somewhere. (thunderfinger)
