Brushes With Hap­pi­ness Moshi Moshi 8/10 Lon­don garage-blues trio’s dark night of the soul

David tat­ter­sall’s group have al­ways seemed keen to put a spin on each of their many records, from col­lab­o­rat­ing with Billy Child­ish to record­ing acous­ti­cally around one mic. Brushes With Hap­pi­ness, the first of two al­bums for 2018, was planned as their own Tonight’s The Night, with the ine­bri­ated trio im­pro­vis­ing bluesy, spare back­ings for tat­ter­sall’s witty and per­sonal words. the re­sult is a hushed, spec­tral de­light, with the ti­tle track a for­lorn lament torn apart by a peer­less gui­tar solo, and “the Lit­tle Win­dow” a Lon­don trav­el­ogue sparked by a lost wal­let “con­tain­ing 500 eu­ros in cash… I could have left it al­most any­where.”
