'Midnight Tequila'   

-  Label: 'Fika Recordings'
-  Genre: 'Folk' -  Release Date: '29th June 2018'

Our Rating:
Following the May 2018 release of Stanley Brink's 'Peanuts', Midnight Tequila is the musical equivalent of a chaser.

Not only does it affirm that alcohol is preferable to nutty snacks but it is also more of a collaborative work in that it gives Brinks' drumming and singing muse Clemence Freschard top billing.

The words are unmistakably those of the artist formerly known as Andé Herman Dune but he has clearly coached Freschard well in how to give an air of profundity to his deceptively simple lyrics.

In Africa the chorus goes "Shake baby shake, rock and roll, I'm going home to Africa" and Freschard's strong French accent gives added depth (and humour) to the modest feminist anthem I'm The Boss .

That said, Brinks is not the type to dwell too much on detailed travelogues or the complexities of gender politics. Instead, tracks like Going To The Bar or Olives And Wine confirm that so long as the booze is flowing all is well with the world.
