Review: 'Tyrrell, Jim'
'French Toast/Fight The Sea'   

-  Label: 'Robo Jack Records/Bandcamp'
-  Genre: 'Folk' -  Release Date: '21.4.22.'

Our Rating:
French Toast is the latest single by Jim Tyrrell who is a busy gigging musician in New England. This single is the first offering from his forthcoming Retrospective album that's out on May 19th.

French Toast has a slow Zydeco folk feel to it as Jim sings about being on the road and getting home from tour to find some french Toast and bacon on the table to help him feel at home once more. This gently gives us an insight of what it's like to be a busy local act (in this case New England) who plays most of his shows within half a days drive of home.

Fight The Sea has a sort of Randy Newman feel to it being a piano led ballad for a woman who has totally changed and well she sits by the sea pondering how to get out of the fix she's in. The solution might be found within the very middle of the road guitar solo that plays against the strings like it wants to be on the soundtrack to the close of an episode of Cagney & Lacey.

If you get the EP through Bandcamp it comes with the bonus live song Soldiers a folk song about Soldiers not realizing the war they were fighting is over and they can go home so lost they have become in the battlefield and so struck down with PTSD are they, will they ever get home safely and can they be persuaded that the war is really over.
