Dan Wilson, The Guardian says, makes Tom Waits sound like Tiny Tim and we don’t disagree – His debut album ‘All Love is Blind’ was released in 2015 and the title track was singled out as one of the iTunes “hot tracks” for weeks on end, the album receiving some great reviews internationally as he played European festivals and shows alongside Dylan, Mark Lanegan and Jim Jones. His new single ‘Leave My Baby Alone’ is blisteringly good with some neat little Sadies-esque chord changes and that amazingly evocative voice. His new album, with his band the Counterfactuals, comes out in January 2019, but until then, this is the best thing you can do with three minutes today (that or send a brick Freepost to Conservative Central Office).
