Originally released in February 2003. Ex Pulp / Longpigs guitarist returns with another album of timeless torch and twang. This is a sumptuous retro pop soundtrack from the new king of croon. Another masterstroke. Low Edges sees Hawley sticking to the template he established on his two previous solo albums: knelling, tuneful ballads are built around an acoustic guitar and sung with a guttural croon that pitches somewhere between Edwyn Collins and the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon. like Leonard Cohen and Lee Hazlewood, Hawley revels in melancholy. Tracks such as On the Ledge and You Don't Miss Your Water (Till Your River Runs Dry) are confections of the most sumptuous misery.
