Christian Lee Hutson is billed as the "King of Bummercore". I guess that's because he sounds sincere when he sings lines like "I can’t uncomplicate this awful mess" (I Do Mean Well) and “they should’ve hired someone more upbeat” (They’re All Gonna Hate Me). “Yeah Okay, I Know” is his second full length release and, quite frankly, it’s startlingly good. Like ‘years end list’ good. It sounds like it could have been recorded back in the golden age of radio. Only with some vital new sounds and scope. Its twelve songs cleverly crafted with great attention to detail and Hutson’s musings are wry, smart, relatable and misleading. He has a way about him that suggests he’s immersed in the traditions of country music and as a result he recalls the likes of those daring country troubadours Willie Nelson, Hank Williams and, like on That’ll Do, Townes Van Zandt.

There will, of course, be the comparisons to other notable young and vibrant ‘old souls’ of recent years such as Connor Oberst, Willy Mason, or M. Ward, but there’s also the ‘mad scientist’ vibes of the likes of Beck and Joseph Arthur on tracks like Ghost To Coast and Castles In The Air. The production, courtesy of David Mayfield, is wickedly smart and each song is packed with incredibly special little moments (like the wonderful fuzzed-up guitar that kicks in after Hutson admits to spending “too long playing dead” or the stuttering and hissing tape effect towards the end of Dirty Little Cheat). The old-timey structures are coloured by hooky melodies, unpredictable flourishes and unexpected instrumentation, which all happen to be executed with a deftness of touch. So yeah, Hutson is a maverick and, if there’s any justice in this big ol’ mad, mad music world, he’s certain to be a huge success. With ‘Yeah Okay, I Know’, he’s bypassed the difficult second album and delivered a record that's daring, vibrant and original. One of those that they would normally call a career defining piece of work and one that sets the bar high for whatever he hits us with next. A remarkable album.(James McCurry)
