Howdy. How’s it going? Ridiculous question really as this is a blog post and there’s no way you can respond and even if you did my email inbox would be full of details of what you did on a Friday. As lovely as that would be perhaps it would be better to ignore that question. I’m sharing Rhodes with you again, for what feels like the 11th time. Having seen him play back in October I’ve been well excited for the upcoming LP since he mentioned it between songs and dealing with a monumentally irritating drunk spectator. “Close Your Eyes” is the first track to drop from ahead of the new album and continues Rhodes’ tradition of epic sweeping soundscapes with pitch perfect vocals that carry you through the all-too-short track. Perfect for wetting the appetite ahead of the full LP release.
