Alex Hall: Motion Picture

~ Friday, 22 January 2010
Hampshire singer songwriter Alex Hall's sound is rooted in the 60's, but that does not mean that it's not a refreshing sound. This download only single is a well crafted acoustic piece of pop that sounds like Paul Simon, The Beatles and The Kinks in equal measure while retaining its originality.

His performance is self assured, the vocals restrained with an undeniable warmth while the subdued drums drive the whole thing along with the guitars doing just enough to make their presence felt. Credit must go to the well crafted and amusing lyrics that tell the story of an imaginary film that plays out in Hall's head. This is a catchy little tune and well worth the 69p cost to download it. I like it very much.
