Af­fect­ing coun­try and fu­ri­ous rock from the artist FKA Kieran Leonard.

Good Luck Every­body – now avail­able on vinyl – comes with quite a back story, with Brit Kieran Leonard mov­ing be­tween York­shire, LA, Nashville, New York and a stu­dio in Stan­ley Kubrick’s Hert­ford­shire manor to cre­ate these 12 tracks. Veer­ing be­tween the aching coun­try rock of Hell & High Wa­ter, the groove­some Rise Up and ro­man­tic kiss-off Long John Sil­ver (which in­cludes the bril­liant line: “I’m al­ways a genius when I’m talk­ing to John­nie Walker”), this is top-notch stuff that draws com­par­isons with Neil Young and Fa­ther John Misty. Best of all is Lit­tle Girl Sci­en­tist, which sounds like a great lost out-take from Beck’s Sea Change. TOM DOYLE Lis­ten To: Rise Up | Lit­tle Girl Sci­en­tist | Hell & High Wa­ter
