Alternative folk with a punk rock feel and a good dose of humor, that’s what Raymond Little delivers on his new, self-titled album. The American singer-songwriter, who we know from The Thirties and Liquid Mike, has recorded twelve delightful gems in his self-built cabin with generator power. These are songs that make you spontaneously shout “yee-haw” one moment (Drink Too Much swings irresistibly), make you laugh a little later (“Well it’s cold and it’s dark out there // Reading Steinbeck in my underwear // He can follow his nose but not the dialog // I love these days with my dog” - from Muddy’s Song), or proclaim an important message that you want to share immediately because it maybe can change certain men’s minds (You Can Do Both is one to sing along to). Both lyrically and musically – great musicians play along – this is a diverse and very entertaining record.
Raymond Little is out now digitally and on CD through Lost Dog Records.
