Over the last several years, Paul Bergmann has been mentioned here quite frequently. He’s been able to craft his solo work around this powerful balladry that’s continued to suck me into his world. This week, he’s sharing his work with his band The Fair Moans, drawing on the musical imperfections that exist in his musical journey. This tune has this natural darkness to it, whether intentional or not, something like Cave or Cohen would present us with; it’s brooding and damning, yet all the while captivating. It’s easy to get lost in the tones of this one, even with the grainy imagery of the video too. Look for Make Yourself at Home, the new release from the group, on February 15th.
