The Real Tuesday Weld 

I, Lucifer

The Real Tuesday Weld
I, Lucifer
(Six Degrees)
Once you get past the lengthy handle, the Real Tuesday Weld conveys languid London cabaret cool, finding fertile ground in the breakup. A Glen Duncan novel serves as inspiration for Stephen Coates’ breezy tunes. In his world, honesty trumps romance through titles like “(Still) Terminally Ambivalent Over You.” With its tinny jazz age vocal, “Ambivalent” serves as energetic bellwether. And Coates can still snarl “No one calls me homeboy” like a young Leonard Cohen to remind us what year it is.
