Overview

There's no sign of a letup in the parade of sensitive young men with designs on breaking listeners' hearts through song. But unlike a good many of his peers, Alexi Murdoch has more up his sleeve than just a bleeding heart -- namely a knack for crafting timeless melodies that have plenty of sheen but precious little syrupy stickiness. Murdoch has been compared to Nick Drake, largely because of the disconsolate murmur and handy acoustic fingerpicking he uses in delivering songs like "Orange Sky" and "All My Days." And while that's taking things a bit far, Murdoch does exude a similarly adrift, lost-soul persona, one that seems utterly free from self-consciousness. Yes, he has a tendency to pay homage to his influences -- which cover the troubadour spectrum, from John Martyn to Cat Stevens -- a bit more readily than he should, but not to the point where he could be mistaken for an open-mic wannabe. At their best -- as on the ethereal "Dream About Flying" -- Murdoch's songs carry a captivating sense of dislocation, a vibe that's contagious enough to keep listeners hanging onto his coattails as he flies off to the next emotional plateau.
