Jim Clements “Not a Lot of Blood” – Listen

Every five years or so, Jim Clements emerges to drop a collection of literate, witty, surreal, gut-wrenching songs, before disappearing again into the shadows. A songwriter’s songwriter in the tradition of Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave, his songs have earned him critical acclaim and a devoted following over his fifteen-year career, and his new track ‘Not a Lot of Blood’ is not so much a riposte to Tony Hancock as a snug, patting rhythm which imbues the music with a gentle rolling motion akin to something between a pitching and yawing cadence. The new album ‘A Failure’ is due October 26th. Hopefully it won’t be.
