Snailhouse - "Sentimental Gentleman (demo)". This song is taken from A Sentimental Companion, a small collection of demos that marks the final release by Montreal's Snailhouse. From here on out, the man who released eight albums as Snailhouse will be known by the name his mother gave him, Michael Feuerstack. I love this recording of "Sentimental Gentleman" and it feels like the perfect last thing from a man who is changing, in a very small way, into something else. Like a song that is sung before you splash water on your face, in the men's-room sink. An electric guitar resounds in a room, a leaf waves on a branch, lyrics unfurl with perfect ease - like a banner strung between street-corners. So deliberate and direct, confident and just faintly wry. Bold-hearted, unsentimental sentiment, from one of the best, and my favourites, no fuss. [buy/bandcamp]Posted by Sean at July 2, 2012 1:34 PM
