Nick: when is this from?
late last year.
it’s very… retro and very uhm….
it’s quite eclectic, an amalgam of different styles.
but is it any good?
yeah, I think it’s pretty good but it’s not the sort of thing that would actually grab you.
it’s very good to listen to and, you’re going to hate me for this but it’s very nice.
nice music, lazy summer afternoon music, sitting with your hot feet in a babbling brook, with a glass of wine and some strawberries, relaxing, no particular worries.
but I wouldn’t run out and shout to the world ‘BUY THIS ALBUM!’
a lot of recent albums have a lot of angst and this doesn’t, it’s angst-less.
I never thought I’d like this album, but it’s pretty great, sounds best while wearing a straw hat, sounds worst when your brother asks ‘is that the new Jack Johnson album?’
