Goodnight good


GOODNIGHT, the second album by experimental folk singer William Fitzsimmons, is a five year labour of love - although it's probably best not to mention love around him.
Not only was the album written about his parent's divorce while he was growing up, during the writing of the LP Fitzsimmons split with his own wife.
So don't expect a barrel of laughs.
However other things you might predict, such as anger and bitterness, are absent from the album.
Instead there's almost a lullaby feel to his low-key Iron And Wine-style guitar, drum machine and voice compositions, which sound like Fitzsimmons laying his demons to rest.
