Hawksley Workman - Puppy (A Boy's Truly Rough)
The 2001 release from Hawksley Workman.
"If you are interested in singer-songwriters with lyrical wit and musical flair, then Hawksley Workman is as good as it gets. The Canadian is a consummate multi-instrumentalist with a rich voice, capable of soaring from a scratchy baritone to a sharp falsetto, but it is his highly original perspective that is truly arresting. Surreally comical without forsaking emotional integrity, he has a gift for making listeners reappraise the obvious. His third major label album is subtitled "Hymns for a Dying Planet and a Culture in Decay". Jettisoning the widescreen pop-rock of 2003's stunning Lover/Fighter for something more restrained and intimate, he contemplates the big issues with the satirical delight of the master of ceremonies at an end of the world cabaret." - Telegraph, UK
