Tom Waits - Raindogs
Came across Tom Waits stuff on Last FM recently and really enjoyed it so bought Raindogs a couple of weeks ago.
Can't believe I'd never heard of his stuff before. Absolutely brilliant and a bit bonkers. Often at the same time. The guy has an amazing voice and I'm loving the whole album's creativity. Also like the way the second half of the album moves from the sort of experimental percussion and drunken New-Orleansy, Cuba-ish feel of the first half and into a bluegrassy style.
I'm clearly finding a description heard to nail down, but had to mention it becasue I think it's just brilliant.
