BC Camplight - Shortly After Takeoff (LRS) LP
Inspired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, "Shortly After Takeoff" is the final, and finest, chapter of what Christinzio calls his “Manchester Trilogy”, following 2015’s "How To Die In The North" and 2018’s "Deportation Blues". All three albums were created after the native Philadelphian had moved to Manchester.
Like "Deportation Blues", "Shortly After Takeoff" spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll, with Christinzio’s similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection, but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication.
