William Tyler's album ‘Impossible Truth' is probably number 1 on my “The More I Listen To It, The Higher It Creeps Up My List Of Favourite Albums Of 2013” list. I mean, that's not an actual ranked list that I maintain and update, or have even written down somewhere, but that doesn't make it any less true. It's probably a combination of the weather beginning to become much more suited for an album full of 6mins+ instrumentals and the fact that the guy is an awesome guitar player.
The evidence of 'awesome guitar player' is all over the album, but if I were a lawyer, it would be this Soundcheck video that I would save for my dramatic closing statement. I can see it now. I'd casually get out of my lawyer chair and go press play on the projector that I set up at the very start of the trial. Everyone was probably wondering why I set the projector up all trial (as I had yet to use it), so while the live take of ‘Geography Of Nowhere’ was captivating the courtroom, I'd stroll over and calmly lean against the juror fence*. Totally confident, totally cool. I'd cross my arms and there would be the biggest “I can't wait till we get to the part where I say “I rest my case”, Law & Order style” look on my face.
But I'm not a lawyer and those sort of trials (probably) do not exist.
*I'm not sure if it's actually called a “juror fence”, but they do seem to keep them herded together pretty well
