ONE man band Rob Jones's debut album as The Voluntary Butler Scheme is out on Monday - is it worth the wait?
On Breakfast, Dinner, Tea, Jones has a classic songwriting approach, demonstrating a clear gift for penning wry lyrics, like.
He then takes these twee tracks and stirs them up with unexpected electronic hints - resulting in an LP that sounds like Hot Chip singing Beatles numbers.
My only criticism is that the tracks can be a tad lightweight, not much to get your teeth into - consider Breakfast, Dinner, Tea more like a light snack.
