[streaming] R. W. Hedges – Best Laid Plans


Taken from “The Hunters In The Snow”, out April 27th via Wonderfulsound.

Pieced together on a canal boat in London, and drawn from Seemingly pulled from the golden days of easy listening, the new record finds Roy Edges and songwriting partner, producer, and label-mate Luca Neiri in beautifully compelling form, the collaboration coming after a chance meeting in Hyde Park brought the childhood friends back together, having previously played in bands together during their youth.

Guided by Neiri’s delicate vision, the new record is quietly dominated by its own restraint, the pair’s love for the Easy Listening era of the 1950s and 60s filtered through a keen ear for doo-wop and rhythm-and-blues, resulting in an album that finds a place all of its own in the hustle and bustle of this new world; existing as a tender escape from the busy London world that underpinned its creation, full of quaint retreats and charming idiosyncrasies.
