IoS album review: Willy Mason, Carry On (Fiction)

From "new Bob Dylan" to old Jake Bugg in seven years.

That's showbiz. But wait, because while a hurried second album lost Mason the ground he'd gained with "Oxygen", Carry On proves that, at still just 28 years old, he is some way from being a spent force. Producer Dan (Hot Chip, MIA) Carey peppers the music with dubby electronica, but the thing that made Mason interesting in the first place is never lost. A surprising (if a little sad) return to form.
