The England originating Israel / Switzerland based alt-rock duo ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) released the LP A Mile Until Dawn on the 18th.
The dozen track just under seventy minute album takes the listener on an aural landscape of intrigue and discovery.
As regular readers know I am a punk rock vocalist from the ’70s and to me a song that lasts more than three minutes seems like an idea I couldn’t sustain, yet, within A Mile Until Dawn lay two tracks heading towards seven minutes long, with eight of them longer than five minutes – and the duo are able to have me thinking – ‘well they could have run for longer without me gritting my teeth’ as ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) invest in each piece many ideas, yet none of them extravagant or extraneous and there is nothing that could have shaved from any of the compositions that would have done other than to detract from their value.
My selection from the album is the third – A Thousand Eyes.
A Mile Until Dawn – Les Pauls is available on iTunes.*
