Lee Harvey Osmond – A Quiet Evil (Latent Recordings)
For this first release on Latent Recordings, Canadians Lee Harvey Osmond pursue an eclectic relaxed groove which invokes in equal measure the bayou and the desert, and in doing so captures a strong essence of the dark heart that beats within some of North America’s rural extremes. Given the presence of all four Cowboy Junkies it’s unsurprising that the mood is poised and restrained and never remotely threatens to break its stride; but the record is led from the front by former Junkhouse man Tom Wilson, which ensures it has an intensity and edginess which raises it above mere ambient Americana.
