Josh T. Pearson 

Considering the rather tragic demise of Josh T. Pearson’s previous band, Lift To Experience, in the early noughties (check out this month’s Mojo for the full, sorry tale), it’s perhaps unsurprising that he’s spent the past decade in something of a musical/emotional black hole.  Having recently returned from Paris to his native Texas, he’s set to release his debut solo album Last Of The Country Gentlemen March 14, on Mute.  New single Country Dumb is a powerful; yet vulnerable lament to lost love and should, fingers crossed, set the tone for the whole album.  According to The Times, ‘not since Leonard Cohen has an artist emerged who can evoke such extremes of human emotion through the device of a simple musical performance’.  Stream a piano version of Country Dumb below.  Download it here.
