Open Mouth / Dexy - Split Single
Even better however is the flipside from South Londons Dexy who, although a newcomer, has already bagged a support slot for Bob Dylan and been earmarked by Time Out as One To Watch in 2007. Such lofty votes of confidence seem very well-placed on the basis of these tracks - especially the sublime Waiting For An Accident. Its wispy downbeat pop - a hushed lament in the style of Elliott Smith. And although the almost-medical precision with which Smiths musical spirit is evoked may seem eerie to some, it undoubtedly makes for great music.
Open Mouth and Dexy embark on a brief UK tour together during the last week of February.
