Ron Sexsmith – Nowhere To Go (2013)

Scroll down to content

More gorgeous melancholia from Ron Sexsmith, a singer-songwriter who sees the flip side to Love Lifts Us Up Where We Belong. On his last album, 2011’s Long Player Late Bloomer, Sexsmith worked with Bob Rock, who helped him reach for brass rings. The record was successful in many ways, but perhaps not the hit wildly dreamed of. Now, the sound is stripped back down, with Sexsmith’s former producer Mitchell Froom perhaps restoring a comfort zone. A French horn introduces sinking feelings: “Stuck in a painting, unable to cry or to make a sound, and there’s nowhere to go but down.” There are few who could translate Newton’s law with such grace, and with a voice that never lowers itself to the down moods about which it sings. Lovely. [Source]
