This is the second full-length release we've heard from Old Man Luedecke...a strange stage name considering the fact that Chris Luedecke isn't that old (although he is, perhaps, an "old soul"...?). Luedecke once again teamed up with producer extraordinaire Steve Dawson here...and the results are spectacular. Chris writes and records modern folky pop with threads of bluegrass. His pure, organic tunes come across like honest statements from a man who is obviously driven by integrity. These songs harken back to the days of singer/songwriters from the 1970s when music was all about songs. Instead of relying on technology and recording tricks to get his point across, Luedecke instead relies on his skills as a songwriter. My Hands Are On Fire and Other Love Songs presents eleven intelligent songs that come straight from the heart. This music is pure and has plenty of real soul. Our favorite tracks include "The Rear Guard," "Foreign Tongue," and "Inchworm." Impressive from start to finish. Top pick.
