A vivid, rich and sparkling collection of songs, One Million Years DC is the second album this year for the inimitable Dave Graney & Clare Moore. Reflective, searching and personal, the album opens with the first single, He Was A Sore Winner, a Kinky groover, sketching a 21st century populist tyrant who coasts in power on waves of public resentment at those on the lower rungs of the ladder. We sweep across a sci-fi terrain with nods to songs in the sand at the end of the world (Pop Ruins) and nods to the ties that bind in the underground communities (Comrade of Pop/Where Did All The Freaks Go?). Songs about defunct technology that didn't answer back, severe social status definition, people wandering through your mind as if it was a garage sale, the anxiety of a long-running showman and a final tune that's a little but Merle Haggard and a little bit Samuel Beckett. This new collection of songs is eclectic and inspired.
