Tip of The Week: Twin Falls - Janie I Will Only Let You Down
Luke Stidson is a man from the West Country who used to run indie label Exercise1. With the label ending in 2008, Luke clearly had a musical piece missing from his puzzle so decided to start releasing music for himself.
Entering the music-making game as Twin Falls, he roped in friends and family to play the instruments he couldn't manage and within a year had self-released 2 EP's. His music was picked up by Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq which lead to airtime on BBC 6 Music and a series of live dates across the land. He then went on to release his debut album Slow Numb in 2011, an album recorded in various living rooms, sheds, barns and pubs around his native Somerset.
This track Janie I Will Only Let You Down is a rather sad song, and you have to feel for poor Janie when you tell her things like 'you couldn't leave me for a minute I could leave you all day', but hey I guess the guy's just being honest. So as you wipe the wet salty tears from your eyes as this song reaches the Radio 1 airwaves, spare a thought for Janie, and appreciate the honesty. Oh and feel free to enjoy it too!
