I don’t listen to Marc Riley’s 6music show as much as I used to. Not for any great reason, it just doesn’t seem to be a time of the day when I have the radio on. When I do listen though, I still discover gems.
This weeks was Hamish Hawk, a Scottish folk singer whose gorgeous voice virtually leapt out of the radio at me. Hawk has worked with King Creosote, with whom he shares a sharp turn of phrase and wry humour.
New album ‘From Zero to One’ arrives imminently. Until then I’ve been enjoying 2014’s ‘Aznavour’, with ‘John Cooper Clarke’ A particular punk-poet referencing, whistling delight.
