Nobody says there’s something about a Saturday morning, but perhaps they (whoever they are) should.
I’ve featured Small Sur in the past and the project released their latest album, Labor, last week. It is a reminder that soft sounds that are thoughtful and serene can overpower a ton of overdubs and over-production. You can listen and buy the whole album over at Bandcamp.
The highlight for me is the LP’s shortest song, Rockaway. The turn of gracefully to gracelessly was understated but captures something worth sharing on this Saturday morning.
Small Sur is the primary musical alias of Baltimore via South Dakota songwriter Bob Keal and collaborators Austin Stahl and Andy Abelow. Here is their Facebook page.
