From time to time I get an email from Already Dead Tape. I always have a listen to the link, mostly for a few seconds.

But, as often, since Already Dead Tape is a very good label, choosing their artists among the most talented they get in touch with, I often have a very good time listening to Already Dead Tapes releases, and, quite often, I feel motivated enough to write a review here.

This is now the case for this album, that you can buy for a small price, which is simply excellent.

A large smile came on my face when listening to the second track, and I knew that I would have to review it here.

The three things that seduced me the most in this release, talking about the music performers, where the sharp and clean-sounded guitars, the voice full of emotion, and this violin always pertinent without being too present.

I also liked the very nice production, just sufficiently lofi to be pleasant.

But the most interesting point of the album, despite of the very interesting quality of the arrangements,is certainly its pop/rock songwriting quality, with an overall very good approach of what music should be, according to my own taste. I think, if you are reading this post, that yours are similar, that's why I strongly suggest you to scroll back to the top of this page and to stream the entire album, which is available so, from the link I indicated.

I don't think that I am talking in vain. This album is very good, and I'll probably make any friend coming to my home listen to it for the next few months. It is an unique blend of indie, pop and rock aesthetics, that is highly enjoyable and should be liked by most people fond of these kinds of music.

Definitively, an album that you should listen to, and that will probably be on your side for many more years.
