Lucky Jim’s debut album is has many facets. It has a luxuriant richness and a transatlantic charm that comes from Scottish born Gordon Grahams honing of his skills in New York’s East Village and Brighton born Ben Townsend?s versatile beats. There are echoes of Westerns and lounge in the easy listening crooning and the soulful folk that?s makes up ‘Our Troubles End Tonight’. There is a mood that would make the album’s title a lie; even the songs with warm sentiments are tinged with tragedy.
‘Our Troubles End Tonight’ is a deep and thoughtful album of quality late night songs.
