REVIEW : Josh White - Absolution
It’s deceptively simple, both musically and lyrically, but the closer you listen, you hear more layers underscoring it, until you finally decide to surrender and let yourself be caught up in it, caught off guard by the beauty of simplicity.

REVIEW : Aaron Sprinkle - Water & Guns
Aaron Sprinkle has turned his impressive talents to a new genre: pop. Is it a good direction for him? Yes and no. He brings a high level of production quality and songwriting to the genre which I find refreshing, but while it’s musically superb and unique in his discography, the lyrics do suffer a drop in depth – or maybe I’m just not on the right wavelength.
