Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Stuart A. Staples: Leaving Songs

Tindersticks front man, Stuart A. Staples released Leaving Songs, his second solo lp, on June 6th (States side anyways).

Leaving Songs is a "collection of songs written over the last year and recorded at Mark Nevers' studio in Nashville, with Dave Boulter, Neil Fraser and drummer Thomas Belhom. Further sessions at Lucky Dog studio featured Tindersticks' stalwart Terry Edwards and longtime collaborator, Gina Foster." Beggars Banquet

Take the choice elements of Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, and Nick Cave and there stands Stuart A. Staples somewhere in the mix. His voice, heartfelt and weathered, I'm only imagining eroded valleys lining his throat with streams of whiskey and gin filling the voids. Images of Staples hunkered down in the back of a smoked filled bar declaring his soul for the creatures of the night. A glimmer of restoration for the listener, a chance of cleansing for our troubadour.

Check out That Leaving Feeling, from Leaving Songs below.

    NOV 4 | SAT | 8PM | $30

    Tindersticks' soulful lead singer strikes out on his own for his first solo appearance in New York City, performing material from his just-released Leaving Songs and Lucky Dog Recordings '03-'04, recorded, partly, in Nashville. Stuart takes Tindersticks' brooding orchestral sound to a more intimate, emotionally revealing place, adding a hint of country to his arrangements. Join a stellar, international band of new friends and old, including Tindersticks mates, guitarist Neil Fraser and keyboardist Dave Boulter. Leaving Songs celebrates change in signature Staples' fashion - with poignancy, lyricism, and heat.
