The third instalment of a trilogy, following 2013’s Blindspot and 2014’s rave-reviewed Distance, Memory finds Dan Michaelson further expanding his “epic minimalism”. Guitars, bass and piano are now augmented by slightly louder drums, and the new brass provides the warmth of a colliery band. As ever, his voice is central: a world-weary croak that sounds to have been perfected over several days without sleeping.
