Quick Review: Mr Hudson - Straight No Chaser

Mr Hudson

Straight, No Chaser


Despite not being a fan of e-single White Lies, Ben Hudson’s sophomore long player was welcomed with open ears. Since …Two Cities many a tale can be told about his meteoric rise to Kanye-on-speed-dial-fame but with each track you can tell he’s still telling it straight; although Panama hats, rained-out golf dates and London living have been replaced with synth-rich pop ballads of misplaced love and romantic heartache. Regardless of its 46 minute length, it’s short and very sweet with lyrics and beats to match.
