Jay Reatard- Watch Me Fall

- 10 August 2009
On the cover of his second studio album, Jay Reatard (née Lindsey) looks a bit like a druggy and bedraggled serial killer. But you can come out from behind the sofa now because he’s really not that scary. In fact one listen to Watch Me Fall proves he’s quite the pop-loving pussycat.
Heaps more melodic than his previous offering, the record features the multi-talented and hugely prolific chap churning out buzzing riff-driven sing-alongs, and it’s his off-kilter delivery and quirky lyrical approach that really set him apart from his peers and keep you coming back for more. Quite glorious.
