jd meatyard is a new singer songwriter on Liverpool's Probe Plus label... Glasgow born but now, apparently, living in Amsterdam.
The songs on the self titled album just out (dec 2011) are heartbreaking songs of loss and astute takes on the contemporary condition.
listen to 'Olive Tree' for as minimal and cutting take on the Palestinian struggle, and to 'Its Alright Ma...I'm Only Screaming' for a bleak, desperate account of depression... and 'Sad Song of A Singer Songwriter'... a pithy debunking of the singer songwriter sensitivity... like HMHB's 'i'm a sensitive outsider' (and i want the whole world to know).
just really good songs, right to the point with some great instrumentation filling out the basic guitar and voice.
I would describe the songs as mark e smith sings louden wainwright... or louden wainwright sings mark e smith! Read more on Last.fm
