Noah and the Whale’s 2009 concept album The First Days of Spring is easily among my favourite releases of the last 10 years. Its sprawling dissection of front man Charlie Fink’s break up with Singer Songwriter Laura Marling is a true masterpiece. So when after a long period Charlie Fink’s promo around his new solo album Cover My Tracks likened it as an unofficial sequel to The First Days of Spring I was more than a little skeptical, especially given the Springsteen-light pop direction Noah and the Whale took in its final years. But the truth is that Cover My Tracks delivers. It still doesn’t hold a candle to The First Days of Spring but songwriter Charlie Fink has captured some of his early magic with his solo album. The release is another concept album (which also comes accompanied by a play written by David Greig) and it deserves to be listened to from start to finish.
