The Long Goodbye by Richard Earls & Thierry Audousset

Leks Maltby

A beautiful, delicate piano melody kicks things off, followed by a solemn, soul-searching lead vocal, a single point of light in the pitch-black night. Digging early Randy Newman records out of a dusty old crate, it's not hard to find some of the inspiration and influence behind this lovely song.

This song is lovely. It has a very classic storyteller feel in the vocals and the laid-back vibe of the piano. The production feels much more clear and crisp than the songs on Volume One and maybe it's just me, but I detect a slight Tears For Fears influence vocally in this one. Speaking of which, at times you can almost hear an underlying roughness in there, a slight growl just waiting to come out. Maybe you could try exploring that in a future song; the potential is definitely there.

Older Wiser Harder Volume 1 four track cd ep by Richard Earls & Thierry Audousset

Craig Roxburgh

The first thing that hits me is that delicate balance between blues and a rather rhythmic smooth jazz feel. It gives the music a very laid-back yet also quite sultry feel to it. Sounds a lot like something that you'd play on a romantic date. It is definitely an EP that would appeal to people with an old soul who have a soft spot for that late 50s/early 60s style of pop music - which now in the modern era translate to being labelled as blues. Really great music for kicking back and enjoying life.

It's difficult to give full feedback on teasers but I like what I hear on all four tracks - particularly the last two - and I would be very interested to hear the entire EP. It seems to have a mix of influences varying from 80s rock & roll to classical music with a bit of theatrics added for good measure. You don't hear a lot of this style of music these days - a shame, as it sounds like you're doing it exceptionally well.
