If there’s been an artist over the years who never let me down, it would have to be Graham Coxon. His time with Blur is well noted but Coxon has been consistently knocking out quality solo records for the over a decade now.
Anyway, back to the here and now. Coxon has debuted a brand new track, ‘The Truth’, taken from his forthcoming new LP, A+E. It is certainly a lot different to his last effort, the acoustic driven The Spinning Top and most of his previous work in general. ‘The Truth’ is a sinister sounding one, revolving around an usual (for him) industrial synth beat with the chugging guitar giving off a dark shoe-gazey vibe. Different it may be but Coxon sounds in fine form and with A+E out on April 2nd, surely it’s time to get excited?
You can get ‘The Truth’ for the price of an email on his website or listen to it below. Also check out ‘Advice’, which debuted on Jools Holland’s BBC show in the latter part of last year.
So what your saying is, I’ve let you down. i feel so inadequate right now Mr Gruff
Hahaha – Ah now Kev, I didn’t say that.
