Bill Ryder-Jones – West Kirby County Primary (2015)

I can’t offer any perspective or context on this latest offering from Bill Ryder-Jones because it’s my first exposure to his music, but I found his brand of alternative folk-rock to be absolutely charming and beguiling. From the opening track “Tell Me You Don’t Love Me Watching” it’s clear what type of album this is, a sort of blend of The Head and the Heart and Wilco, with Ryder-Jones’s longing, haunting vocals adding an extra touch of barely contained sorrow to each track. This is the type of album bound to be a wonderful companion on cold winter nights.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
