Graham Lindsey? Not, as it turns out, an accountant from Luton but a woolly and possibly wild songwriter from Montana.

His instrumentation is rootsical and includes all the hammer dulcimers, mandolins and dobros you could for wish for in one place. And if his vocal phrasing and timbre do call to mind Bob Dylan every now and then, it is at least good Dylan. We Are All Alone might stand next to John Wesley Harding and not blush with shame. Terrific, astringent record.

Pick of the album: 'Tomorrow Is Another Night': another long night of the soul
