Robin Jackson “Drifting At Sea” – Listen

It’s easy to hear the influence of Robin Jackson’s previous band, the dark boho-cabaret band, Vagabond Opera.  It’s no real surprise that the Portland based multi-instrumentalist has also worked with Amanda Palmer.  The moody Drifting at Sea is taken from his new album Dark Stars.  It’s a drifting, lilting soliloquised expounding on the way love dwindled and left behind a hollow husk of loneliness.  And it has a hummable tune.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan’s music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That’s not much to ask, is it?
