  • Live review: Slaughtered Lamb gig | Polly Paulusma
    who cry bitter tears for years not to mention how often having another lover causes one quite unnecessarily to recall one s sister and brother for no apparent reason Aside from a far more considered lyrical approach to her material originality shines out from Polly Paulusma s actual choice of subject matter too Without resorting to the hackneyed fall back topic of the lonely misunderstood poor broken heart that staple of artists the world over there are not that many songwriters who can consistently hold one s attention while navigating other themes Across three albums she manages this deftly her best songs generally eschewing the angry angst and breakups in favour of a jubilant thanks for life and love or for bleak crushing reflections on the loss of friendships or loved ones for bereavement the fragility of life and the ultimate importance of being thankful and savouring every minute we have Where anger does reign supreme in One Day for example the cause of her ire is not even broached and the rage itself is masked in a vivid and creative description of how to contain one s emotions both metaphorically and in a marvellous touch of perspective quite literally I noticed another key feature of her craft during her set Not being a guitarist I do not recognise guitar tunings and chord inversions when I hear them But watching her play I was able to observe her choices of tuning and high fretboard positions they granted her access to a wider range of walking bass lines and melodic progressions within the chords themselves which are not often present in the three chord arrangements of lesser musicians I always feel you can tell a songwriter who plays or writes at the piano even if their primary instrument is the guitar The keyboard tends to lead to a wider range of chord progressions and musical motifs even at a basic level Of course capable guitarists can achieve their own levels of complexity but past learning their first 20 chords or so few bother expanding their musical palette any further Whether this keyboard theory of mine is true or not in Polly Paulusma s case and I could be way off the mark I think it s still clear that the guitar is her primary instrument the more folky melodies tend to be filled more sonically with the guitar while any song with a jazz or soul inflection she plays at the piano in a more sparse arrangement Which is not to say that they are lacking simply that she has a careful sense of which songs work with more and which with less I am usually slow to absorb new material and it often takes weeks of repeated listening for me to take to a new album Or more to the point I am usually reluctant to say anything too definitive in case I end up changing my mind However a few tracks already stand out to me The opening song
