Tuning into Lauren Laverne this morning on 6Music during my ablutions, and I caught half of a song. Another one of those earnest, sensitive singer/songwriters was my first thought. Gently strummed chords, the barest hint of a melody. But Christ, the vocals! Thin, reedy, nasally and whiny. It was familiar but I couldn’t quite place it. It got worse as it went along. One of those American folkies beloved by the press I reckoned.
Almost right. It was Kermit, Am I out of touch?
