INDIE. This is a local artist who recorded part of the album in LA. Mostly digital instrumentation is reverbed vocals, drum kit, organ, bells, some guitar. He experiments with some fun effects, too. Mostly chill, mellow, sweet, relatively easy to listen to. Great voice for sure, nice lyrics. No FCCs detected.
***1. (3:43) Fun, wierd very end with dissonant bells. Medium-slow.
***2. (3:20) Humorous lyrics. Upbeat drum kit, gets a little more intense.
****3. (3:10) Nice chorus. Just a very solid song. Ends VERY abruptly.
***4. (3:47) Finger-picked guitar, reverb like in a chapel. Very mellow. Drum kit comes in half-way.
***5. (4:01) Sex gasping and other recordings cleverly used as plot devices. Cleaner, closer-sounding. Upbeat. Kinda false ending. Repetitive vocal melody. Ends suddenly.
*6. (4:37) Sappy love song. No kit, so VERY mellow, slow. Just vocal, organ. Very repetitive end with some interesting organ effects.
****7. (6:07) Slow, quiet start with strange recordings. Into a normal, fingerpicked song, then add kit. Medium speed. VERY dynamic.
**8. (4:56) Starts with applause, wierd sounds. Creepy for a bit, actually. A little harmonica solo. Dark lyrics.
**9. (5:55) More harmonica-at beginning. Soft. 3/4 time. Slow.
***10.(2:07) Strange fade in with effects. I feel like I'm walking through a metallic tube towards him. Kinda sudden end.
**11.(3:26) No kit. Introduces some VERY interesting harpsichord lines. Dead air at end!
