|this collection should have “more variance” than Poetry Of The Deed, Turner says. “I think Poetry is a good album, but it's a little monochromatic, looking back on it. This time around, the record goes to many more interesting places.”|
|“Having made a rock album [Poetry Of The Deed], I feel more comfortable heading back towards something that, on balance, is a little folkier,”|
|“There's a lot of material about mortality, death, faith and belief,”|
“I'm not entirely sure why belief and death have been preoccupying me of late, but they evidently have,” he adds. “I've been listening to a lot of Nick Cave, and also mewithoutYou's latest album, which I think have pushed me down certain lines of thought.”
Sounds intriguing, hopefully he doesn't totally abandon the the "rock" sound of PotD, since it is by far my favorite album of his, but a little "variance" is always nice too.
And apparently I need to give It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All a Dream! It's Alright
another chance too, it was just such a turnaround from the more aggressive toe-tapping/stomping poetry of Brother, Sister
. I love folk music, but folk infused rock music is just so much more fun.
