Richard Turgeon – Go Deep
Go Deep is Richard Turgeon’s third release in that many years, all for the Kool Kat label. And like Lost Angeles (2018) and In Between the Spaces (2017), Richard weaves plenty of guitar jangle and memorable hooks into his varied compositions.
As in the past, Turgeon leans heavily on his knack for melody with a slightly jagged edge. The up-tempo “The One that Got Away” is a joyous start the the album with it’s guitar crunch and catchy, radio friendly chorus. And there’s lots more where that came from. “If You Leave Me” and “Next to Me” are equally as enjoyable, with the latter being a bouncy, 3-minute jaunt to Weezerville.
Every RT album has at least one delightful lyrical gem that knocks me out. This time around, it’s “Lonely Old Man”. The song has an Abbey Road era Beatles vibe to it as well. it’s perfect, dammit.
To use a sports analogy (which seems only appropriate given the album’s name), Go Deep makes Turgeon 3 for 3. You can get your copy of Go Deep from Kool Kat Musik. Order it from Kool Kat and you also get an 11 song bonus disk called Ten Covers!
If you’re not yet familiar with the other 2 albums in the trilogy, I suggest you pick those up, too. They’re all highly recommended.
