Xavier Black – The absurd

Xavier Black can perhaps be described as lo-fi singer-songwriter music. Frontman of the band is Justin LeFurjah, wo is assisted by soem friends from the same area (Northampton, USA). This cd contains 12 tracks with titles like ‘jealous cat’ and ‘fall down drunk wake up preacher’. Acoustic songs, over which LeFurjah sings his often bitter, ironic or absurd lyrics. He is not a great singer, and often out-of-tune and plaintive, but at least he brings the songs with passion. Honest and intimate folky singer-songwriter popsongs without too many pretensions.
