Black Car – Black Car
Black Car's debut album heralds the return of Dan Glendinning and his brother Tom, once of Brit rock favourites, Headswim.
Black Car's debut album heralds the return of Dan Glendinning and his brother Tom, once of Brit rock favourites, Headswim.

Sticking to a similar blueprint to their original band, they glide through these ten tracks with progressive rock and folky pop, drawing from influences such as Coldplay (Come on home) Sonic Youth (100% Proof) and Simon & Garfunkel (Count Them On One Hand).

First single 'Asleep at the wheel' starts proceedings, a song that is yearning for a catchy pop chorus. However the placid nature of the subject envelops itself in a stale rendition of 'Three was a magic number'. Thankfully further on in the album Black Car's sound starts to develop, 'Come on home' would make Chris Martin proud.

Black Car's experimental folk is evident in the middle of the album to mixed effect, 'You'll be the end' is a brilliantly crafted song accompanied by the excellently well timed slide guitar, 'Count them on one hand' is perhaps the stand out track of the album this is similar to Simon & Garfunkel circa Bookends but then explodes into a orchestra of guitars. Latterly 'St John's' lets the flow down, this sounds like a poor imitation of Nick Drake, most certainly without the emotion.

Overall this is a decent album but if they would of cherry picked the truly great tracks. Yeah... so much better.
