Ursula's Crow 'The heartbroken potter's idiot boy was snatched from the speltfield.

all they found, pointing from a sett, a small grey hand'. Favorite track: Ogre.

greengreenthursday Good lord has this man been hammering out masterpieces the last couple of years. Anything you'd seek out in music, especially in the songwriter genre, is there. Personality, authenticity, and the feelies. There's the weird vocal inflections, there's the eccentric topic choices that might never before have been covered in music in this form, and both frame these touching stories about people from different walks of life and eras. Richard's music is deeply human, don't sleep on his discography Favorite track: Scientist.

No listener to Dawson’s earlier music has ever discerned a lack of artistic ambition. Whether they got on at the last stop - the 4 track Tyneside-Trout-Mask-through a-Vic and Bob-filter of Nothing Important - or earlier in the journey, with The Glass Trunk’s visceral song cycle or The Magic Bridge’s sombre revels, devotees of his earlier recordings will be at once intrigued by and slightly fearful of the prospect of a record that could make those three landmark releases look like formative work. Peasant is that album. From its first beguilingly muted fanfare to its spectacular climax exploring a Dark Ages masseuse’s dangerous fascination with a mysterious artefact called the Pin of Quib, Peasant will grab newcomers to Richard Dawson’s work by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let them go until they have signed a pledge of life-long allegiance.
