Brett Martini's name has popped up a few times before here at Music Critic HQ. Martini is part of the madcap band I, Ludicrous and formerly played bass with the glorious Voice Of The Beehive.
Lovers Lane, a downbeat ballad from the seedy side of life and love, is his first solo release. There is a simplicity to this record that is strangely alluring. While it doesn't have the sense of humour of I, Ludicrous or the irresistible pop sensibilities of the Beehives, the downright honesty of his performance is refreshing.
