Coles Corner

In Sheffield, England, Richard Hawley's hometown, Coles Corner is the place where lovers meet before an evening of romance. No other word could come as close to describing what his newest album, Coles Corner, feels like: romance. As a guitarist Hawley is an an ex-Longpig and ex-Pulp, but as a vocalist he shines, with texture and emotion reminiscent of Scott Walker, who esteemed Hawley, "up there with the all-time greats." Lovely.
