• prydwyn Solitude Owes Me a Smile (CD, £7.50)

    label: Hand/Eye

    Prydwyn's hands have touched many albums over the years, and all of them have been made better for his participation. He is one half of Stone Breath; has recorded and played live with Tom Rapp (Pearls Before Swine); and fronted his own folk-psych-rock unit, Green Crown. Yet in all of these years, "Solitude Owes Me a Smile" is only his second solo album - the first came over a decade hence. Here we get the benefit of all those years experience and patience as Prydwyn distills the best of what he does with others into a point focused by his own vision. From the detailed acoustic touches he added for Tom Rapp; to the wonderful harmonies he makes for Stone Breath; to the poignant songwriting and arrangements he did for Green Crown - all of this and more graces the timely, and timeless, "Solitude Owes Me a Smile."
