Reissue. Chris T-T returned in 2016 with 9 Green Songs, his long-awaited follow-up to 2013's The Bear and a pseudo-sequel to his classic 2005 album 9 Red Songs. 9 Green Songs captures the vulnerable fury that bore the grassroots, folk-influenced approach of 9 Red Songs (an album that still resonates 10 years later), adding a modern Twitter feed tick-list of ideas, charged by the energy of his recent work with the Hoodrats. If anything T-T is becoming lyrically more radical. The genius of Chris T-T's songwriting is his ability to humanize even the most outlandish conceits, until they seem instead like brilliant ideas nobody else would've come up with. For fans of: Beans On Toast, Frank Turner, Billy Bragg, Ben Marwood.
