PROLIFIC singer songwriter Chris T-T's new album, Love Is Not A Rescue, is not a rescue from drudgery - the perennial support man is unlikely to make the leap to headliner with this, his seventh album.
For the folk-tinged acoustic act is just that little bit too downbeat throughout his new LP - with the results about 50-50.
When the Brighton-based singer picks up his guitar, he comes across as dreary, a sort of depressed and contrived Frank Turner, but when he takes to the piano, his craft can be as affecting and poignant as they come.
So while not yet the main event, as a side show, Chris T-T is still worthy of your support.
