I have often cited Scottish musicians such as Adam Stafford being some of our most underrated and under-publicised. I think it is time to admit that Finn LeMarinel really has to be placed in the same category.
I find myself sitting, watching and listening these artists and sometimes questioning loudly ‘can everyone hear and feel what I can right now?’
Today’s Song of the Day is LeMarinel’s ‘Known Voices’, its peculiarities are what makes it a vivid, spellbinding labyrinth. The temptation to fixate oneself on LeMarinel’s fascinating vocals can sometimes take away from his intricate guitar pluckings and tappings.
After blogging about music for a while now, my expectations and filters have become more rigid. ‘Known Voices’ shatters those expectations and does so with more originality than the thousands of lemmings I have to subject myself to. The depth of feeling this song has goes beyond my understanding.
