Label: Ashmont Release date: 07/09/09 A soundtrack to a book you say? How is this going to work exactly? A song per chapter? Perhaps some spoken word interludes? Well it certainly sounds feasible. Actually it’s a rather good collection of singer songwriter material. In my mind there appears to be continuity over the course of the tracks too. Unfortunately it doesn’t encourage me to read the book in any way. Sounds like the memoir of some shoe gazingself-reflective guy who has no real appeal as a character. I don’t want to meet him or share the joys and pains of his life. However I wouldn’t mind listening to his music collection. Sure it’s a bit maudlin but it does have some nice guitar riffs and a general Americana feel. Forget the book, this is music!
