2.2: Nick Drake – Bryter Layter (1971)

Sometimes you find your favourite music. But in those rarer moments, that music seems to find you. That’s the experience Rob had with 1971’s Bryter Layter by singer-songwriter Nick Drake. The record was Drake’s second album, exploring English folk-rock textures with some chamber pop and jazz thrown in, and with some interesting lyrical content to ponder, too. The Deeper Cuts trio talks about that and the album that finds you: music that seemed as if had been waiting for us all our lives. They also discuss the surprises found in Bryter Layter even years later and the beauty that can be found in its details: hopefulness and melancholy living together in an enchanting way that enfolds the listener every time.
