Richard Hawley has always shown a penchant for writing deeply evocative and emotional songs about people and situations in his hometown of Sheffield. His early recordings, especially Lowedgesreflected his obsession with lushly orchestrated pop songs and a production style that extended a song far beyond its margins and into the listener's world with a near visual sensibility.
This was even more true on the brilliant, near cinematic recordings Cole's Corner and Lady's Bridgewhere he took production skills and hometown images to a level that almost -- but not quite -- overtook the glorious melodies in his songs. Hawley created emotional atmospheres as well as sonic ones; nostalgia was a poetic device that evoked the ghosts of history, but were clearly present for the listener.
On Truelove's Gutter another Sheffield-inspired titleHawley has dug the well much deeper and brought forth a spring of new ideas in his singing, writing, and production, but paradoxically, has done so with less.
The album is more sparse than anything he's released. Its eight songs have a decidedly late-night feel. The grand sweeping orchestral strings of his last two albums have been replaced by a chamber section and odd instrumentation -- like Various - Howsla (File) waterphones and crystal baschets -- that add real intimacy to the proceedings.
These songs reflect his own experiences, or the trials and tribulations of friends. His gorgeous melodies shine through brighter in songs For Your Lover Give Some Time - Richard Hawley - Trueloves Gutter are naked and unflinching, yet musically more sophisticated, adding depth of field.
The melody is infectious, and Hawley 's soaring baritone evokes the power of Roy Orbison 's tenor. It is followed by the country-ish "Ashes on the Fire," whose melody is as revealing as its lyric; it's a devastating tale of someone who wrote -- and delivered -- a letter confessing an passionate love, only to discover its burnt remains in the dustbin. Hawley conveys his protagonist's complex emotions without judgment. His beautiful guitars support the storyteller line by line.
It's an For Your Lover Give Some Time - Richard Hawley - Trueloves Gutter tale of a friend who likens his life to a shipwreck.
The lyric and melody are elementary; there isn't an extra note. Hawley 's extended guitar solo underscores its powerful subject matter as a device and illustrates what a terrific storyteller he is.
