Time Traveler (Top 35 Indie CDs of 2013)
Rock/alt-country/folk from Denton Texas. Occasionally rough, scratchy male vocals. Lots of acoustic guitar. Narrative vocals are a bit nostalgic, a bit melancholic, very wistful. Not lo-fi, it has very clean, cinematic, production from Sub Pop. Someone who likes Ed Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes would probably like this.
Recommended 2, 1, 7, 11
1. 2:26 * Twangy, acoustic, reverb, layered, loud and joyous. anthemic. nice instrumental. becomes quiet and reflective in last 30 secs.
2. 3:44 * Midtemo, Crooning and yelled vocals. Catchy guitar riffs chug along.
3. 3:27 midtempo, vocals + acoustic guitar only. more crooning, melancholic, reflective; might like this if you like neutral milk hotel
4. 4:24 Quieter, rhythmic guitar plucking, gentle guitar, gentle vocals; really pretty
5. 3:38 active, soaring vocals. electric guitars. corny ending.
6. 3:32 plodding picked electric bass/guitar beat. bluesy half-spoken vocals.
7. 3:32 * relaxed, blippy, synth, almost like Air. Midtempo vocals, vocals get a bit anthemic.
8. 2:43 dejected. downtempo, vocal + guitar. "la la la" 's. fairly pretty.
9. 3:58 Vocal driven, blue-sy; sad country. Quiet bits of acoustic guitar.
10. 5:25 Violins. lamenting and crooning again.
11. 3:04 pop-y, vocal driven, a little guitar strum, maybe like Jack Johnson?
12. 4:21 * downtempo. slightly more restrained vocals. prominent brass, flute, and strings. almost something you'd expect from a broadway musical.
