When you're this, this in love ---

out May 12/2023 on Tin Angel 

order vinyl LP/CD           


With When you’re this, this in love he put all his signature sounds together so if somebody was going to ask what record of his they should listen to then this would be a good start because it has all his styles of song done pretty good on it he mostly sings folk songs sometimes dressed up as lounge-ballads, rock nocturnes, classical-chansons, time-traveling, lucid, jazzy feeling pop songs too it might irk the base of your taste or the taste of your base but it’s not so contrarian as that his songs are pleas laments there’s an olive branch behind his back    one of the songs is called Tiny Tim not just about the 60’s Tiny Tim or the Christmas Carol Tiny Tim but the Tiny Tim on every street corner right now that no one is seeing    when Janine heard the song Oona she saw the Great Mother feminine Eye in her mind on Heroes of Eros he tried to maintain compassion and be pro-love across the centuries in Always On The River he followed her whispering    Metamorphic love songs is what he wrote when we reach a dead end in life we wait, then maybe the lamp light turns on just behind the abandoned loft and you can see the fire-escape stairs and find a way back in that’s the important part – wading into the real intimate, deep feeling, the long haul journey of love, the anguish, the lifting the tanker over the mountain, where it takes you, how it breaks, remakes you, the end of the earth of it, the lost and found of it    except for Felicity who sings on Angel Landing a song about having to take out the trash and dance at the same time all the voices are his baritone tenor falsetto and Gunther his AI voice who pops up now and then Gunther is subversive land spirit    He went into the recording with a weird feeling, as if on a precipice he was sliding down and sliding up he still needs to hear songs that make him feel in new life ways like those old dead songs that now sell for mega millions used to maybe he was mourning that now he’s weirdly smiling about it, doesn’t feel like a big thing we’re in a way different place this time has its own particulars that can suck you in, vampiric fears all around inside and out he sings to the dead and to the living that he never sees for crumbs, bricks, toothbrushes, in shadows, mist, alone, discarded, like a real outcast, like a real Tiny Tim you don’t have to accept the fact that he’s a scarecrow under the city, but it’s his gut’s 12 song reply in the face of what’s to come
