Joel Nicholson has just packed the removal cases, his guitar and the instruments. It's good that his music is so easy to transport from one place to another, between the places and to the people. Once, the 22-year-old Briton has described the cast list of his intimate band as "me and my bedroom". In Manchester the songs of "Butcher the Bar" fill a small house now. But soon these walls won't be the single ones in which they live. "Make this house a home" matches this atmosphere. It sounds a little like Elliott Smith, the chords' persuasive power, the immediacy of the softly spoken words.
