The creeping up of a great album.

I’ve been working on a drawing of the Birmingham based Jazz musician Andy Hamilton CBE over the past few weeks for an up coming exhibition in London in March. He wore a very bold pin striped suit for the sitting which looked fantastic and I wouldn’t have asked for anything more perfect, but the act of drawing the textile was incredibly tedious and repetitious and felt a bit like doing lines at school for 4 days. So , whileI was doing this I was plaing some music and I played this one by Midlake which I asked Anne to get me at hristmas because I loved the single off it “Roscoe” . To be honest I played it twice and it just washed over me really. But, I’ve been playing it again lately while I’ve been “doing my lines” and it’s crept up on me as a bit of a classic.  Sounds a bit like Baffalo Springfield and classic , early 70’s Neil Young with a bit of Rufus Weinright. Sometimes you just need to giv things a bit of time to ferment.
