New Beard -- Moment of Peace -- (Shoulder Tap Records)
Brooklyn-based New Beard jumps over many genres, from indie to soul to folk to pop. The band is the brainchild of singer Ben Wigler. He’s added background vocals to bands Dead Confederate, Samantha Crane and the Indigo Girls. The vast experiences show in the vast styles. All tracks on this EP are good, especially 4 and 5. No FCCs
*1. (3:22) -- Mid-fast. Poppy bass guitar and intermittent guitar. Catchy chorus with a "keep on believing" feel-good message. Nice guitar solo toward end.
2. (2:50) -- Mid-fast. Live track, but clean recording. lots of ohhs and ahhs. pretty rad quick guitar plucking. Somewhat aggressive. Lots of bridges and mix-ups.
3. (2:31) -- Fast, electric instrumental. Quick guitars and matching synths. Climbing and descending riffs. Contrasting tones and sounds. No vox.
**4. (3:50) -- Mid-slow. Pretty, quiet thoughtful track. Muffled bass and eerie synths far-off. Male/female vocal duet. Big guitar solo toward mid-end.
***5. (3:04) -- Slow. Acoustic, medieval finger picking. Male/female vocal duet. Pensive and thought-invoking. So good!!
