Richard Hawley – The Ocean (2005)
– from the album “Coles Corner”
It’s a sumptuous delight from ex-Pulp and
Longpigs member Richard Hawley.
“The Ocean” completely passed me back in 2005 as i was going through one of my occasional anti-music phases, so imagine my delight at recently discovering it played on the hippest radio station based near my current residence of Liepaja, Latvia (thx Radio 101). “The Ocean” draws you in before ascending to a spiritually uplifting finale which doesn’t wane, even with repeated listens. If music can really be good for your soul, then you could do far worse than begin right here.
Random Fact: Mr. Hawley hails from my hometown of Sheffield.
