marlon williams Make Way for Love (CD, £10.50)label: Dead Oceans
Known for his effortlessly distinctive voice, ‘Make Way For Love’ marks Marlon’s exponential growth as a songwriter. Throughout 11 original songs, he explores new musical terrain and reveals himself in an unprecedented way in the wake of a fractured relationship. While ‘Make Way For Love’ draws on Marlon’s own story, it captures the vagaries of relationships we’ve all been through: the bliss, ache, uncertainty and bitterness. Like the best breakup records, ‘Make Way For Love’ doesn’t shy away from heartbreak but rather stares it in the face and mines beauty from it. Includes ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’, a duet with Aldous Harding recorded via a late-night long-distance phone call.
