We listened to ‘As Good As Gone’ taken from Andy Burrows’ “Fall Together Again”:-
Super-tense, densely piteous chords dutifully start an ominous procession along a well-marked route – with prominent clackety rimshot accents of rhythm that continue to run long and thin – through the whole song.
As things become more mellifluous – jam-packed with fruity harmony – this song expands into a larger space.
By then, the gorgeous vocals are golden brown – like over-ripe cider apples – slightly bruised and delicately fermented.
