The Watchful Eye of The Stars
Adrian Crowley has always sounded like the journeyman troubadour – an unassuming guy who slings the guitar over his shoulder as he jumps the train at dusk heading to his next destination. It’s apt, then, that the opener to The Watchful Eye of The Stars is called Northbound Stowaway. It calls to mind Lee Hazlewood with its wistful, plaintive and expansive palette.
He teams up with John Parish (Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey) and Crash Ensemble to flesh out his sound and lyricism.
It’s a privilege to hitch a sonic ride in his company and transport oneself.
