Darren Cross, Peacer (2018)
I had best intentions about reviewing this – I really like it – but time has gathered up around me and surged everything forward. Darren Cross already has another new album – all instrumental too – so I’ll review that. And soon. But meanwhile I’ll give it a wee plug here. I also like his debut solo album a lot – and really got hooked on the Jep and Dep album too. There he is just pumping out the quality material. Searching for a musical home, an audience. Man I hope he’s finding it. Too talented to go to waste, too much good stuff happening under his pen and via his guitar. It’s hard out there to keep creative work up unless you’re bankrolled or lucky-af. He’s committed to releasing vinyl – even coloured vinyl in this case. To creating moving, emotional works that resonate. I wish him all the best. And I’m loving the brand new album already – but had to step back to this one. It’s worth hunting out. Give him some of your coins. And some of your time. You’ll like the trip.
