Delafaye “Anyway” – Listen

Delafaye is the performance name of Lousianna one-man-band Andrew Shockley who home records , and plays all the instruments on his tracks including this new one.  ‘Anyway’ is dreamy and melodic – it’s an anthem of non-commitment and  active avoidance with a hint at deeper issues at work “I wish I was fine / I wish I really was / I hope you and me, stay together for a while”.  It’s burnt out and downbeat, and it sticks in the mind.

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?
