Harper on


HARPER Simon, whose name sounds back to front, harrumph, releases his self-titled debut LP this side of the pond on Monday.
And his origins are clear here - even with the biographical track Tennessee, or a mention of his famous father Paul Simon.
Because the album is one part woozy, dreamy orchestral indie perfect for Sunday mornings, while the others are steel strung Americana and country embellishments, which gradually hijack the album as it progresses.
Sadly for me, the results left me more "yeah" than "yee har".
