The Murmuring of Thieves

The Murmuring of Thieves may be one of the most remarkable albums of acoustic music released in 2016. Powerful, different, yet echoing a long tradition, it seems to have arrived full of intent out of nowhere. Songs that range from the almost cinematic Riding the Road (maybe the ultimate road trip song), the heart-breaking Nothing’s Changed (about the closure of a steel works in the North East of England), from the state-of-things Going Crazy Down on Main Street, to his heartfelt elegy to his adopted county Derbyshire Times. American Girls in Paris is a wry account of two girls out to enjoy the ‘exoticism’ of Sunday in France.
