Spencer Burton first began tilling the folk and country music fields to great acclaim under the solo moniker of Grey Kingdom. On his upcoming new record “Don’t Let The World See Your Love” (September 16 / Dine Alone Records) Burton has decided to step from behind the pseudonym curtain and use his proper name. But the music suffers none in the transition.
“A Body Is All She Ever Let Me Hold” is a cut from that album, co-produced by Burton’s old Attack In Black bandmate and fellow roots-music traveler Daniel Romano.
The song’s a melancholy delicate yet taunt composition sheathed within a breezy style reminiscent of the moody pop-folk of Nick Drake. It’s a song that fits perfectly in a rainy day and a Summer drive.
