Bristol, England-based folk musician Matt Elliott is a master of natural pacing. Many of his compositions have this uncanny quality of being neither a minute too long nor short, taking as much time needed for the subject matter to self-resolve. 2005’s Drinking Songs, for example, felt like a series of woeful, unshaven, staring-into-a-dirty-mirror dirges of guilt, each lasting until the cigar smouldered and the numbing effects of whisky had plateaued. His albums each have a distinct conceptual tone, while painting a similar shade of remorse.
