Album of the Month - November 2018
Doug Paisley's album Starter Home. Available here on LP with Bonus 7", Standard LP and Standard CD.
Doug recorded this (his first album in five years) in his Toronto hometown in various studios around the city. He’s previously played as ‘Dark Hand And Lamplight’ (with artist Shary Boyle), as a duo called Russian Literature (with Chuck Erlichman) and in a Stanley Brothers tribute act.
The lonesome cry of a lap steel guitar is comforted by the soothing warm vocals of Doug Paisley. The occasional ripple of lachrymose keys. Subtle licks of harmony. Music that’s melancholic but cathartic and soothing. A few more uptempo tracks come along but still have the minor cry of guitars and sweet backing vocals.
LP+ - Includes 7" with Two Bonus Tracks.
LP - Standard LP.
CD - Standard CD.
