Track Of The Day: Neville Skelly - 'Falling Leaves'

This album was released over a month ago and I'm only just featuring a Track Of The Day from it now! Why? Because as I have said before, I only select what I know is the very best new music around. It took me two weeks to really absorb this album, and now I am at the point where I know what the best tracks are from it. I could have just rushed it and featured any old song, but I work hard to ensure RW/FF readers don't miss out on the best stuff. The second album from Liverpool singer songwriter Neville Skelly is a warming collection of songs highlighting his gift for graceful balladeering and hushed moods. Featuring a couple of relatives from The Coral and partly inspired by his experiences of being a father, 'Carousel' is an intimate, heartfelt record which has an atmosphere that could partly be attributed to it being recorded in the kitchen of a terraced house. Skelly's alluring croon recalls echoes of John Martyn on the gentle acoustic breeze of 'Falling Leaves', one of the LP's most captivating moments.
