22-06-2014 // Album: John Moreland - In The Throes


This record is a little over a year old, but it's such a beauty it still deserves attention from us music lovers. John Moreland is singer-songwriter from Oklahoma who plays almost all instruments on this pure and warm americana folk record. This record is said to be his finest so far, I haven't listened to his previous recordings yet, but In The Throes is a beauty.

His slow sanded voice reminds of Bruce Springsteen. The slow, depressing songs ("Break My Heart Sweetly") have that old country-based broken-hearts theme. But there's also a lot of humor hidden inside of his music, John doesn't take himself too serious, it seems. "Nobody Gives a Damn About Songs Anymore" is a great song with an amazing short story inside. Both funny and a little dramatic.

In The Troes is a beautiful record. Stop reading, I'll stop typing anyway, and enjoy the record.
Favorite tracks: Blacklist, Break My Heart Sweetly, Gospel.
