James William Hindle
Prospect Park (Badman Recording Co.)
By: Alex Steininger
Combining 60s A.M. pop with 70s British folk, British folk singer-songwriter James William Hindle goes from Simon and Garfunkel to Nick Drake, through Elliott Smith. Drawing upon these influences to craft slightly cloudy, oft warm, but chilling tales of life as he sees it. He backs up each tale with frightening melodies. The kind that befriend you and make you feel comfortable, but then, with the turn of a key, send chills up your spine and make you sit attentively as you hang on the edge of your seat, following the guitar as much as you follow Hindle's voice. A sharp, well-packaged collection of lyrics and melody, Hindle's Prospect Park helps him stand tall as one of the best singer-songwriters out there today. I'll give this an A-.
