Brave Man's Death - J Roddy Walston & The Business

It sucks being a record promoter, well I think it must. At times you must be pushing a band you don't like, you don't believe in and they probably think the world owes them a number 1 record. I guess that's why you can't believe a thing they say. Occasionally you come across a good promoter, one that only sends you decent stuff, give you mp3s to post instead of just a link to YouTube and they introduce you to someone good who you've not heard before. Enter J Roddy Walston and the Business' promoter who is 'proud' of the album they have produced. I would be too.

Brave Man's Death has got balls, it sounds like an American band who's been on the razz with Paolo Nutini. J Roddy sounds like a man who has travelled far to get away from his roots but they've followed him everywhere and made him the man he is. The album's out in a few days time, I wouldn't be surprised if it's a slow grower in terms of chart success and then all of a sudden people will declare J Roddy Walston & The Business an overnight success.
