Kim Churchill - Some Days The Rain May Fall (Blix Street) 
Kim Churchill - Some Days The Rain May Fall

Release Date: 27th January 2014

OK, I'll admit to a little bit of narrow mindedness here. Before pressing play, I assumed Kim Churchill was an Aussie pop singer lacking in the testicles department. I couldn't be more wrong as Mr Churchill is a thoughtful, talented and tender singer-songwriter. With balls. 'Some Days The Rain May Fall' is a gently pulsing, undulating song full of reminiscence and guitars that ripple and wash over your ears like spring water over smooth pebbles. This is a song that should be heard around a fire while you cradle someone special to you and huddle under a blanket. The second track on this release is 'Fear The Fire' which continues the theme of rolling, almost liquid guitars before building in to a stomping, urgent and vital song that grabs you by throat, lifts you off the floor and holds you for a few seconds and then lets you go. Kim Churchill is touring his ass off this year having already travelled around Europe with Billy Bragg in 2013 so expect to hear a lot more from him in 2014. And it's definitely a him.
