Everyman Of Parts – Arid Eyes
I think I always liked Badly Drawn Boy more than most people seemed to. A lot of this stems from the fact that I loved About A Boy. Yea, jerks, I mean the sentimental Hugh Grant early-oughts heartwarmer. Mostly, i just worship at the alter of Nick Hornby (which in turns stems from my complete obsession with High Fidelity). But, tender admissions aside, Badly Drawn Boy's full-hearted, diverse, sometimes acoustic warblings always struck the right chord for me.
Everyman Of Parts is the musical project of Andrew Sheron who plays almost every instrument of his upcoming album, Travelling Time. Sheron is chanelling Mr. Gough something fierce here, which is refreshing really. It's a form of honest, meandering indie rock that's been lost in the current reverbed, synthy haze. The songs of Travelling Time are comforting with an underlying fierceness. Sheron's talent is always evident as he jumps around genres and woos you with his words.
