“Praise is what we crave, it whispers like a lover. Time’s a funny thing, it sings in our ears like a siren.”
John Howard – Across the Door Sill (Occultation Recordings) 8/10
John Howard last week released his latest solo album, following on from the Europe-wide success last year of his new band’s self-titled debut LP John Howard and the Night Mail. Across the Door Sill is a concept album which really delivers the goods despite throwing fans a curveball on first listen, differing markedly from the full band sound of the Night Mail.
