In most of Zach Hurd's songs, the shimmery acoustic guitar pop tends to give way to melancholy lyrics. That little glimmer of hope and optimism that comes through in the hand claps, various layers of sounds and vocals, as well as ahhhs and ooohs, keep things bright. These songs are the perfect bittersweet pill that the doctor prescribed for when you wake up in a hazy fog of stress and discontentment, it's sure to mellow you out.
Till the Morning (Sides A & B) I really liked, especially the notion that people can be "all filled up like a bottle of gin" as Zach sings in the opening verse. Go here to stream the full album.
