Lazy Sunday - Tom McRae

Lazy sunday and top of the shuffle pile is a bit of singer songwriter. This comes from Tom McRae's third lp "All Maps Welcome". On this one he tried to flesh out his sparse sound. I think it really works on this as I like the way it builds up before it is stripped back down again

So take a card and put it back
Hide the face and cut the pack
The future's not that clear
Light me a smoke
I'll tell you a story
Of how the west was won


  1. never been sure about this bloke....doesnt do enough to stand out from so many others who just look and sound like him

  2. know what you mean there are an awful lot of this kind of stuff around (blame David Gray) but I'm a bit of a sucker for the angst of a singer songwrite

  3. thanks Kimberly but I think I'll have to pass
