The bard of Horwich- Mr Danny Short – is back with a new EP and rather good it is too – we expect no less from the big man.
There are five excellent tunes moving from jangly guitar pop, via elegaic pastoral picking, through atmospheric waves of sound, via glam power punk pop, to layered psychedelia. Variety is the key word with this selection – he has moved on and up, developing his sound, mixing up the genre influences – and they are all distilled into a delightful aural cocktail
Danny never disappoints and yet again he proves to be one of our best current writers with a keen ear for melody, great arrangements and peerless multi-instrumental delivery. His ability to switch from driving power pop tunes to drifting melodicism is rather special and I urge you to check this out.
