Missing / Tom McCormack
One of the best records of the year. It's difficult to find beautiful music married to politically compelling lyrics - usually it's one of the other. What a find, then, is McCormack whose second release is filled with gay and lesbian portraits painted by unusually fine music.
Disarming lyrics and soothing piano playing plus pure, emotive vocals make this record accessible to everyone. My favorite is the thunderous "Coming" - about a lesbian living in the closet - which provokes both chills and joy. this is spirited, compelling music which focuses on living proudly and happily as gay men and lesbians. Reviewed in BILLBOARD recently, McCormack will make your day. Fab choice for in-store play.
