Son of folk rock royalty Richard and Linda but don't let the good manners, pretty melodies and folk legacy fool you. Teddy Thompson is a seething ball of malcontent brought up on a diet of classic country music, merging the writing skills of Dad with the vocal grace of Mum; not a bad start. Carefully avoiding a tacky Nashville twang, here are real songs of heartbreak; bitter lyrics and intricate pop. Introspective maybe but never dreary... with echoes of U2, Springsteen and Jackson Browne, there's plenty of foot-stomping to go with the melodrama.
