Richard Hawley - Hollow Meadows 2 x 180 Gram Vinyl LP (08256460564)

Gone are the jagged riffs and heavy soul of 2012’s ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ and in its place is classic songmanship and mellow fireside melodies. The 48-year-old denim-clad dandy proves he can still rock out on the thundering garage gospel of ‘Which Way’ and drivetime chug of ‘Heart Of Oak’ but once that’s out of the way, he seems far happier to plump the sonic cushions and cosy down into a feather bed of delicious doo-wop and sensual swing. Simple, but in no way sparse, instrumentation drives the languid ‘Sometimes I Feel’, with close harmony backing vocals lilting away like they’ve been lifted from a lost Leonard Cohen ballad. Like a timid Syd Barrett, Hawley skitters around the fringes of psychedelia on the warbling ‘Welcome The Sun’. A dark and lengthy folk ballad on which his voice comes over even deeper than usual, it’s the sort of moody territory normally trampled over by Nick Cave, yet in the hands of Hawley manages to take on a soft tenderness. - nme.com
