Smog, A River Ain't Too Much in Love

LP, Domino

Smog appears to be Bill Callahan and this LP is a collection of his lyrics over a finger-picked guitar. I say "appears to be" not to insult the man. His name appears on the album and there isn't much information that came with the release.

Anyway, these are quiet songs where the lyrics are the foundation of the thing and they're delivered in the quiet sort of way you'd expect to match up with finger-picking and ... wait a minute, some muted drums make a solo and end a song.

And just when you were thinking "Bor-ring!". (thunderfinger)
