Brand New Songs for Walter
My fascination with Songs for Walter goes back to the early singles released via Bleeding Gold Records; there was this solemn depth to the songs, accompanied by similar imagery. This round, however, he seems to still tackle isolating emotions, like the daily grind and accompanying fears, but the music is a tad bit more upbeat than what we’re used to from Laurie. Perhaps this is a new direction, or maybe the song’s meant to show light to the downtrodden working classes. Regardless, another great single from one of my favorite songwriters.
