The Americans continue their pursuit of
fashion and attempting credibility through angst and the
British spin dizzily trying to be original, You Am I go
quietly about their magnificent trade without pretension
Hourly, Daily is an introspective piece
of art. It's etched by Tim Rogers with wry thoughts and
observations of life in and beside the real world and set
against the backdrop of the carved and beautifully battered
city that forms some semblance of a home town for them.
It's caustic, downbeat and heavy with sentiment. It's about
backyards and neighbours and walks down the old streets.
The rhythm section is stark one moment then snarling the
next. The vocals go from plaintive whisper to bloodcurdling
Rarely does a band touch an audience the
way You Am I continue to prove they can.
