One thing we learned last week at The Great Escape is that Paul Thomas Saunders is an angel among men. I mean, the tracks we know and love are incredible. Beautiful, powerful and moving. They're engulfed in swirling strings and cleverly arranged ambient synths, but strip it all back to one man and an acoustic guitar and the emotion just drips from every note. Just Gorgeous.

The swell and crash of waves seems an appropriately replacement for the strings on record and adds yet more nostalgia and depth to this stunning performance.
