With Small Town Water Tower, mercurial singer-songwriter John Southworth has countered Niagara's much-lauded melancholia with a revitalizing, eerily deceptive pop album. Fully embracing modern 21st century recording techniques, Southworth has transformed his uniquely antiquated style, somehow bridging the vast, impenetrable gulf between Tame Impala and Burt Bacharach to forge a new fluid and cohesive stamp - part future shock, part ghost - at once strangely contemporary and anachronistic. Merging disparate sources has consistently been a signature of the UK-born, Canadian- raised songwriter. Now, combined with a lyrical view equal parts surreal and realist, this singular trademark glows irrepressibly. "I'm not sure exactly what it is I've made," says John, "some kind of conversation between the new and old world I hope." Expressing an unsettled, dreamlike vision of lives in crisis, amidst species and eras fast disappearing, Small Town Water Tower (his 10th full-length, produced by Derek Hoffman) sounds like nothing in Southworth's previous canon, nor in the current pop-sphere - a dizzying, cinematic and brilliantly crafted event.
