Americana-uk.com (8/21/05) Lanky “Odd Hour Work Week” (Imposter Records 2005) The first thing that jumps out on this album is the absolutely brilliant production. Musically, Lanky specializes in tight, punchy pop songs and on ‘Odd Hour Work Week’ he absolutely excels. ‘Falling Hard for the Girl’ is an exercise in pop perfection, while ‘Crashing the Car is Learning to Drive’ has echoes of Costello. The only disappointing thing about the album is that it is only nine songs and twenty six minutes long. If Lanky can flesh out his repertoire for his next release, he might just be capable of recording a classic. www.lankymusic.com DW
