Oh this has just about made my day 🙂 The Oxford music scene has four main sites/publications that review albums – Nightshift, Oxford Music Blog, Oxfordshire Music Scene Magazine and lastly Music In Oxford. I’ve always been slightly scared of sending stuff to be reviewed locally as it kind of means a lot, Oxford is after all my hometown. I had been particularly nervous about hearing what Music In Oxford would have to say about Harpsichord Row as a few years ago I must admit I shed a few tears over a particularly cutting review of an EP. (Don’t worry – I got over it pretty quickly). So anyway, earlier I got a very nice tweet from my friends The Black Hats telling me that I had a ‘blindingly good review’ and was thus able to click on the link without fear or worry about what might be written…
And what did I find? I found this. Thank you Rory for taking the time to not only listen but really understand the album. I love that you GET it!
Also – NEXT GIG IS AT THE WHEATSHEAF IN OXFORD ON SATURDAY 28th JULY. See you there?
