More bruised beauties from one of our favourites, Bill Ryder-Jones.
“But there’s a fortune to be had from telling people you’re sad” says Ryder-Jones on the opening track of ‘Yawn’, his fourth album, via Domino. But Bill won’t
be ordering gold taps for his bathroom on your tear-ducts anytime soon, simply because there’s nothing mawkish or insincere going on in here. ‘Yawn’ is an
album that looks for understanding - down the back of life’s sofa. These are everyday stories about situations we all fall from and into, out of and back up against the wall again - and they are sung to us, up close, by a voice still in hock to a few uncomfortable truths.
