FOLK and ROOTS; RON SEXSMITH.

Time Being (V2)

YOU either love Canadian troubadour Sexsmith's tentative vocal or you hate it. All of which is a shame because his songs are often beautiful but criminally ignored. His eighth album is a pared down affair, full of winning melodies in the simplest of settings, produced by Elvis Costello deskman Mitchell Froom. The choice of the studio svengali shows, with I Think We're Lost sounding very much like Costello at his laidback best, and All In Good Time a warm summery affair with hints of Jack Johnson. He raises the temperature just once, adding unexpected bite to The Grim Trucker in an otherwise beguiling set of songs. PC
