Rob Storey's always eloquent lifelong song project continues in this typically pithy collection. This is song as domestic interior, lit with a sparkling wit and displaying an elegance of form which escapes his peers. The usual supporting cast of anonymous South London guest stars provide colour and detail, and the arrangements are quietly idiosyncratic; but the focus is on deftly sketched narratives of corrosive humour and coruscating humanity - which typically conclude in an entirely all too familiar emotional impasse.
