Album: Pete Molinari, A Train Bound for Glory (Clarksville)
Sunday 06 June 2010
As a wise critic said of CGI film-making, when anything’s possible, nothing surprises.
And so it is with music, resulting in a return to traditional ways of making records (see also She&Him and Raising Sand) that rock and roll without resort to studio wizardry. Kent born Pete Molinari’s 1950s-style third album was recorded in Nashville with, among others, Elvis Presley’s backing singers. It is, by some way, the best Americana record by a Brit so far this year; the sound of God’s own jukebox, no less.
