Modern Hinterland

The Longest Part of the Night (Label Fandango)

Northumberland’s Chris Hornsby has always been a class act and he’s expanded from a solo performer into a fully-fledged band in the shape of Modern Hinterland, which pulls in a bassist from Wales, a Canadian drummer and a guitarist who has spent the best part of a decade in New York. What hasn’t changed is Hornsby’s ear for an infectious melody and this album thrums with them, taking in warm-hued folk and the kind of Americana that arrows straight to your heart.
