One of the most captivating albums we've heard on Ubiquity in a long time – and one of the most gentle, too! Damon Aaron's a wonderfully skilled singer/
songwriter – one with a pensive, quiet sort of feel – but never in ways that are sleepy or noodly. Instead, he brings a bit of soul to his music – stretching the tunes out with slight cosmic touches on synth or keys, always used sparely, but in the best sort of ways to hearken back to some of the best folk funk moments of the 70s. Aaron's vocals are especially nice – soulful, but without ever trying too hard – and his natural warmth really shines through in the tunes. Beautiful stuff throughout – with a balance that few others could master – almost as if Nick Drake had been listening to Marvin Gaye, then was produced by Conny Plank instead of Joe Boyd! Aaron's previously worked with Breakestra
, Build An Ark, and others – but he really sounds great here on his own. Titles include "Fire", "Matinee", "Fall", "Clouds", "Rainy Day", "Better", "First Love", "Giving", "Where Are You Now", and "It Reveals".
