Song of the Day (11/4/09) November 4, 2009

Richard Hawley is the bee’s knees.   After doing session work for people like Beth Orton and Robbie Williams, and later serving as Pulp’s touring guitarist, Hawley eventually decided to turn his band to his own material.  The result is music that recalls, at various times, Scott Walker, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Presley, but is still distinctively Hawley’s.  Characterized by his distinctively melancholy baritone, Hawley makes music that’s the perfect accompaniment for cloudy days and rainy nights.  This is “Just Like the Rain,” from his 2005 album, Coles Corner.
