Jeff Pianki - On Forgetting

This one time at bandcamp...I found Jeff Pianki. This album is a bedroom album, meaning both that it was recorded entirely in his bedroom, and that I would prefer to listen to it in my bedroom so I can feel sorry for myself in private. There's a lot of heartbreak and chasing of broken people woven through the eight songs that make up Paper Window. What makes this worth throwing a few bucks towards is the honesty that hits you over the head, the emotions in the songs feel incredibly genuine. He reminds me a bit of Joe Purdy with a less distinct voice. It's incredibly hard to pick one song for you, so I highly suggest you go and get the entire album which is name your own price. I like all the songs, but I keep coming back to this one. 
If you have a friend trying to get by in New York I highly recommend sending them "New York or Here". The lyrics say it all. "Love will surround you my dear/ In the autumn or spring/ In New York or here/ No matter how cold or distant some days may appear/ Just know love is all around you my dear."

  1. It's perfect to close your eyes and surrender to. I'll have to check out the rest of the album later.
