Boomkat Product Review:
Still working on his debut album, Charlie Alex March has dropped this taster EP via Lo Recordings' quirky pop imprint Loaf. The lead track here is a cover of Daniel Johnston's awesome 'True Love Will Find You In The End'. This is a very different incarnation of the song from the heartbreaking, threadbare original: March throws a string arrangement at this rendering, making it sound all rather lavish. Of course the difficulty with covering a song like this is that he's not only allowing himself to be compared to the Johnston version, but all the other excellent interpretations there have been over the years (Beck and Wilco for starters). Fortunately, Charlie pulls it off nicely, and then goes on to get a bit weird with the lovely Colleen-ish percussion outbreak 'When The Clouds Clear'. The other side has the thoroughly likeable instrumental ditties 'Piano Song' and 'Thinking Of You'.
