DUFF THOMPSON - HAYWIRE

ABOUT

 

Duff Thompson's "Haywire" is an odyssey of an album that makes for a moving, strange, familiar, and exciting debut. Songwriting that demonstrates a rare level of craftsmanship is matched by each song recieving special attention to arrangement. Strings, clarinet, and steel guitar accompany a Slim Whitman-esque lullaby, followed by muddy, howling, live-to-tape garage rock. Meanwhile, extravagant pop ballads are contrasted by stripped-down guitar-and-story folk. Each track is its own living world, tied together by a distinctive overall aesthetic and Thompson's sincere, expressive and singular voice.

Release date: December 11, 2020
