For about two weeks now, I’ve had the chorus of ‘Appointment In Samarra’ by Paul Thomas Saunders repeating in my head. Taken from his new EP, ‘Lilac And Wisteria’, the song builds around a slow-paced guitar loop, unfolding gently into a dreamlike atmosphere, as synths swirl through the track and the rolling drums nudge things along. Despite this lazy-sounding style, there’s a dark intensity to the song, too, thanks largely to Saunders’ lyrics and sharp voice. Check out this beautiful live studio version.
