Nice!

Yeah, really enjoying his stuff - Kinda Drake, Martyn, Buckleyish but he's good enough to pull it off

It sounds nice but that video almost made me puke.

I listened to "All Kinds of You" last night and, although good, it's too in thrall to his influences.

This new one is still starstruck, heavily John Martyn-ed this time, but the sheer weight of the thing is irresistible.



and here's an acoustic Primrose Green which highlights the pluses and minuses

+ the heady guitar playing

- the voices tendency towards pastiche



but still tremendous. Looking forward to the LP.

Interest was piqued by the review in Uncut. Will definitely be investigating further now. Cheers, Nev.

He's no Ed Sheeran, but nice fingerstyle, and serviceable voice, will keep a watch.
It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

Nothing more to add. Good album, wears his influences on his sleeve.

Saw him live in London a couple of months back and was blown away. Am going to see him at Bush Hall in Feb. Can't wait.

Yeah - his one has been in high rotation last few weeks.

Perfect for a run on a winter's day too.

John Mulvey's been tweeting about an embargoed LP that sounds like "Halfway To A Threeway" (my fave O'Rourke) channeling "Journey Into Satchidananda" (eek!) and I hoped it would be, and it is, the new Ryley.



Fucking hell. Pure gashnip x

I saw him at Rough Trade last fall and he was terrific, totally different from what the albums had led me to expect. The set was recorded and posted on NYCtaper.com.
["Minnie the Stalker"]The first time that we met I knew I was going to make him mine.

Really like this new song and have ordered the album on Bandcamp.

He's playing lots of dates in the uk this year some with Danny Thompson, including festivals, Islington, Guildford etc.

Yeah I might get to York. The "Deep Cuts" edition has a 40 minute version of "Sullen Mind".

There's a very decent bootleg (sound quality and performance) for download here

I've got my ticket for the London gig in the autumn.
