THE LONER(S) "4 New Songs"
This handmade assembly comes to me as a four song (of course) cassette. The song titles are #2, Like To, Water On Fire and Follow and the small handwritten credit sheet does indicate that the songs were recorded on a four track in various peoples rooms.
It has a nice feel to it, which is consistent all the way through. The songs are simple in construction and the vocals are very non affected. This is late night listening, kind of how Astral Weeks or Tim Buckley are. There is nothing to compare The Loner(s) to except to say this is like a demo a friend made just for you.
All in all I like the tape, though I wish it were longer with the program repeating on the flip side. Next time though, please record at a little higher volume, eh.
