BD Harrington - Regarding the Shortness of Your Breath - 2013


BD Harrington’s piano, guitar and voice are augmented by pedal steel, stand-up bass and Don Kerr’s inimitable percussion and cello. From the plaintive lament of ‘New Skin’ (“the light will part the flesh and leave every door ajar, and I won’t wonder where you’ve been, I won’t wonder where you are”) to the vertiginous, hallucinatory ‘Mariella’ (“bring your soft lips down and kiss my new concussion”) ‘Regarding the Shortness of Your Breath’ is haunting, cogent and solidifies BD Harrington’s unique voice and establishes him as an emerging songwriter of note.
