Published Sep 22, 2015As previously reported, Peace frontman Dan Geddes has rebranded as Lt. Frank Dickens for his forthcoming cassette release, Sunburned. After teasing us with the title track, he's now streaming the collection in full.
Central is Geddes' tender and bassy baritone, which delivers a plethora of poetic lines throughout the diverse release. It runs comparable to that of Jonathan Richman on opener "To Buy You Flowers," a track about sweeping rooftops to make a few bucks to buy someone a rainbow bouquet.
Other vocal touchstones include Beat Happening's Calvin Johnson or the Psychedelic Furs' Richard Butler, the latter influence detectable on the post-punk mood tune "We Don't Have to Lie." "The Urge to Turn Away," meanwhile, runs with a spoken-word intro before jangling into a full band arrangement.
You'll find Lt. Frank Dickens doing his duty via the stream down below. The physical copies land September 24 via Horses Records.
