Brosseau sprouts a band


GUITAR man Tom Brosseau's latest album sees the singer songwriter growing from a solo act into a full band scenario - and for large parts of Posthumous Success it's dead good.
The album, his eighth outing, sees Brosseau experimenting with a fuller sound which brings to my mind a kind of Turin Brakes harmony in its more straightforward numbers.
And at other points Brosseau crafts a distinctive acoustic grunge sound, and although he has a tendency to overcomplicate the sparser tracks, there's always lots to like in his lyrics - such as his genius rhyming of hole and Dave Grohl.
Dead or alive, the blues folk guitar work of Brosseau on Posthumous Success is finger pickin' good.
