Aaron Lee Tasjan – Silver Tears (New West Records, 2016)
I’ve been eagerly waiting for this one. The first outtake Little Movies dropped me on my knees a few months ago and because I wasn’t able to get up, I’ve spent the past weeks mostly looking up to the sky waiting for the cosmic ALT cowboy to come and pick me up with his new album Silver Tears. The day arrived last Friday 28th of October when the new Aaron Lee Tasjan album came out on New West Records. The vinyl didn’t arrive to the local store in time, so I only have this spotify thingy for the time being, but I’m already so loving this album. Americana, country, rock’n’roll & blues, but also Beatles and Randy too. Sure might almost feel like a mess, but if that’s the case then damn if it isn’t the sweetest kind of mess I can think of and a beautiful monster of an album. Works wonderfully from first chord to last word. Well done Aaron.
