Hugely under-heralded Canadian songwriter Jim Clements issues the fourth of his highly occasional albums -A Failure – next month. Not A Lot of Blood is the first track released to the world. Typically, the wan prettiness of the tune drapes a light veil over a smart and ruefully humorous lyric. It’s a fine song but, for Clements, relatively gentle. We’re looking forward to a few more pointed stiletto jabs on the rest of the album come October.
