Pat LePoidevin

American Fiction (independent)

He has the kind of voice that is a little unsettling; going-for-broke vocals that seem like they should crack but never do, no matter what he's singing about it all feels a little melancholy, a little heartbreaking. In American Fiction LePoidevin, a dual citizen, gets in touch with his US family history by weaving fictional small-town narratives into his heavier romantic tunes. Part road trip-inspired short story collection and part folk-epic masterpiece, after Highway Houses, and the intimate concert at the Coho during In the Dead of Winter, I'd listen to just about anything LePoidevin put his name to, but an album this ambitious is especially satisfying.
