Deceptive simplicity plus powerful determinedness mark Tom Brosseau’s hypnotic tunes. Listening can feel like being plugged directly into Brosseau’s psyche, a dry, cool lunar-like landscape dotted with transient images, each shot through with intense colors. We suggest you take your time with these compelling live recordings. Nibble and digest. Then nibble some more. There’s a haunting component to Brosseau’s music and delivery. He makes a strong impact with lasting, lingering effects.
Origins: Mary Anne was originally released on Late Night at Largo (2004, Lous Records) and appeared again on Empty Houses Are Lonely (2006, Fat Cat). Been True, Drumroll and Wishbone Medallion can all be found on Brosseau’s latest release, Posthumous Success (6/09, Fat Cat). You Can’t Sit And Wait is inspired by the wisdom of Tom’s dad.
Tom is joined by the vivacious Angela Correa in this session on electric guitar and vocals. Nice complement.
