My Music Monday

It's been a while since I've seen or heard from Teddy Thompson.

While not a household name, as only one of his disks has ever charted (and not highly) in the U.S.

Teddy comes from the lineage of legendary parents - Richard & Linda Thompson, who had the seminal album, Shoot Out the Lights, back in 1982.  By all accounts, both parties said it was a match made in hell.  Still, they made an outstanding record.

Teddy has been putting out music since, the early 2000s. Some good, some ok. None of it bad, per se.

Like his parents, he sticks with guitar and a mostly folk approach. His new song, "Heartbreaker Please", is the title track from his forthcoming disk, is a little more pop-oriented, but not in a bad or sell-out way. His guitar work at the break is a bit Dire Straits-lite.

Thompson isn't breaking any new ground here, but he sounds good. And we can all use that these days.
