Recommendation of the week: Blair Dunlop

This week Lepus Music’s recommendation is “356” by English folk artist Blair Dunlop. This charming and humorous track is about a person who falls in love with a car (a Porsche 356 to be precise) however they cannot afford it. The uplifting chord sequence and simple production provide the perfect backdrop for Blair to exquisitely reveal the story. His delivery and lyrics provide the perfect ratio between raw emotion and humour (never have I heard an artist fit in the words “dual carburettor” so subtly and skilfully). Take a listen to the track to find out what the story means to you and if you want more you can catch Blair Dunlop live at Cecil Sharp House near Camden on the 25th of February.
