During This Is a Game, Waterhouse sets up a snarly, post-surf guitar solo with a succinct statement of a cynical outlook: This is a game, Please remember my words, And don’t get upset when you don’t get what you think you deserve .

Artist: Nick Waterhouse. Label: Innovative Leisure. On his second album, the laid-back charms of this retro soul throwback from California make for a record of rich, cool, stylish tunes that always favour the vintage sound.
