Liam Betson 'Austerity Measures Cassette Tape'

Product Information //


Austerity Measures is the second full length release from Liam Betson (FKA Liam the Younger). While 2014's The Cover of Hunter saw Betson stake his claim in the songwriter-and-band idiom, Austerity Measures instead employs more adventurous methods of delivery for his imaginative lyrics. Neither a throwback nor an invention from whole cloth, the album fluctuates between synthesizer-inflected pop tunes and sparse arrangements of voice and guitar. It is equal parts Chelsea Girl and Apocalypse, girl, while remaining firmly grounded in Betson's own sensibilities and idiosyncrasies as a songwriter.
