“These are beautiful songs, superbly delivered each and every time.” – Charles Jenkins
It’s not every day someone just comes out of the shadows and hands you a collection of jewels. Rejoice, for this is such a day.
Listen once and be reminded a bit of break through ‘break-up’ albums like Sea Change or Blood on the Tracks. Listen twice and the songs are under your skin for good.
“The Things She Never Owned” is the work of Whtsqr (“White Square”), the disemvowelled alter-ego of songwriter and musician Guy Morton.
There are 12 original songs on the album – from the almost Astral Weeks-like Polythene Sky through the startling imagery of Melted Woman to the Countrydylanesque Midnight Souvlaki and the sparkling pop nugget No Mystery.
