From the opening chords of ‘Murderous Joy’ I knew it was going to be a special song. Nothing like its title suggests, this is a country tinged pop tune. Carter Tanton‘s melodies are traditional and timeless but there’s plenty of twists on ‘Freeclouds‘.

Carter Tanton’s debut solo record is an over achiever! There’s a mixed bag of goodies from the accessible opener ‘Murderous Joy’ to the noiser ‘Horrorscope’. I hadn’t heard Tanton’s previous band Tulsa, nor his work with Marissa Nadler’s band but he’s picked up some solid song writing skills somewhere! In short, If this record has passed you by, I recommend taking a peek.
