The Endless Note

2010 Top 30 New and Old #19

Another late entry to my Top 30 this solo album from Swimmer One singer Andrew Eaton was only released at the end of November but made an immediate impact with me.

An album of piano based songs it lives in a world somewhere between The Bathers and The Blue Nile though it doesn’t have the polish of the latter or the complexities of the former it is the perfect soundtrack to those maudlin Sunday’s we will all experience come January.

“Hanging” – Seafieldroad

The album is only currently available for purchase as a download from the Swimmer One  website HERE or from eMusic by clicking HERE

Tom Waits is another of my artists of the year and will feature in Christmas and New Year holiday posts as well.

I have always been a big fan of his earlier albums with “Closing Time” being a particular favourite, this year however I have delved further and deeper into his later works.

My choice for this post is however from the 1985 album “Rain Dogs” and in particular the song chosen was due to it being covered by James Grant at his recent concert at The Fox and Hounds in Houston (see HERE).
