As Good as It Gets | David Gray “Fugitive”

Two more weeks and the wait is over; on September 14th Mr. David Gray drops Draw the Line, his tenth album. Our friends in the UK have already been enjoying David’s first album of new material in nearly four years. The first single “Fugitive” is as expected, top notch. Draw the Line is available for pre-order if you are stateside.

    Yeah, I’m looking forward to hearing this too. I have to say, I’m digging the look of the snipes I saw around NYC last weekend.

    I’ve been resisting a post on Gary Go, so I figured I would settle on this. Listen, if you don’t like it, don’t read it. — ACL

    Saw David Gray at The Troubador in West LA before his first album came out. He put on a great show. Most of us in the crowd were KCRW music junkies, so he was kinda fresh at the time. I haven’t really listened to Mr. Gray since then. Maybe I’ll have to check out his latest.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Michael,

    Don’t let the d-bags get to you. If you like it, post about it is what I say. I may not be a big fan of The Gray but his voice is phenomenal. One of the more original to grace the airwaves in some time. And 10 albums into a career should not be taken lightly.

    Anywho, his tailoring is IMPECCABLE. Thank the good lord the age of the well dressed musician is making a comeback.

    All the best,
    Dennis Cahlo

    The tailoring is great. The suit is Paul Smith if I’m not mistaken.

    I’ll chime in with another “really?”. I mean, for chrissakes, who knew David Gray put out two albums, let alone ten? I guess there’s something to be said about something here, but the accomplishment of 10 doesn’t impress me much. I don’t think about him, but if I did, I suppose I’d think it was just his job to sing songs and make albums. Those two or three notes he likes to hit with pachinko regularity keep me from hearing that there are words there, somewhere. And it seems like he just might be trying to sell me a new Chrysler.

    In light of your project here, I would think you’d have enjoyed the show I saw a few weeks ago at Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker Street. It was one of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen, and let me tell you, I’ve seen a few. Mark Eitzel, from (ahem) the American Music Club, accompanied by only a piano player. It was as if he were singing karaoke versions of his own songs. And the song about Johnny Mathis’s Feet. If you don’t know, you better ask someone.

    Start with 60-Watt Silver Lining. Let me know what you think.

    “Lost Songs” by Mr. Gray is a fantastic work. He’s done other much great work, though some inconsistent albums. “Life In Slow Motion” had some soaring moments along with “White Ladder.” Some guys spend their whole lives trying to write some of those melodies.

    And they don’t get there as often (if they ever do at all) as David Gray does.
