This week's featured album is I Often Dream of Trains by British singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock. Robyn started out in the 1970s with the Soft Boys before going solo in the early 1980s. He's known for quirky, haunting poetic lyrics that in early days drew comparisons to the style of Syd Barrett.
I Often Dream of Trains is his third solo album, released in 1984. It's an all acoustic effort, with Robyn's lyrics and vocals at the front, backing himself on electric and acoustic guitars and piano.
Today, Robyn remains an active recording and touring artist, with no less than 20 studio albums under his belt. His most recent release, The Man Upstairs, came out in 2014. Check out the man and his music at robynhitchcock.com.
