Small Sins 

Pot Calls Kettle Black (Thomas D’Arcy Music)

Consider the colour of this album’s cover and liner for a clue to the music within. Packaged in an aquamarine that’s at once cool and warm, these two currents meet and flow together in D’Arcy’s vocals, the instrumentation and arrangements. Again working with John McEntire, who produced and engineered the recording, and getting the whole band (playing guitar, bass, drums, keys and clapping) in the studio to record---instead of only bringing them out on tour---D’Arcy has found his sound, a discovery especially evident on “Why Don’t You Believe Me?”, “You Will Lie,” “Where There’s Gold” and the closer, written with now ex-member Todor Kobakov on keys, “Tonight.”
