I really can’t understand why Findlay Brown isn’t a global phenomenon. Sure he ain’t exactly reinventing the wheel but his application is both pristine and heartfelt. His debut ‘Separated By The Sea’ has had most of 2007 to make an impression but thus far his folk infected ditties have failed to ignite widespread interest. As ‘Come Home’ poured gently over a Christmas advert (granted it was for a credit card) it seemed as if it was only a matter of time before Blunt was finally consigned to the permanently sealed dustbin of history. Brown perches on a ledge where above him Nick Drake whoops sweet homilies and below him Jose Gonzales faintly hums what could be his next big smash. It’s all so quiet and timid, perfect for star-crossed lovers or a soothing tonic for the tiny animal with several broken limbs that you are nursing back to health. There is still plenty of time for Brown’s talent to ensure he stays in the black so you know what you gotta do. KD
