As a little pre warning I am going to go right ahead and say I am not a musical person. The only song I can play on any instrument is the knuckles on piano. So I'm not going to act like I know the ins and outs of instrumentation. I do love listening to music. I am a lyrics guy. I like Folk, Alternative Country, Country, Southern Rock and Blues Rock. That's my precursor.
Robert Ellis self titled album came out recently and I have listened to it all the way through about five times now. I will say this right off the bat. If you are not a fan of alt. country or country in general then I do not think this is the album that's going to win you over on the the genre. If you like Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Ryan Adams, Justin Towns Earle and that kind of stuff then definitely give it a listen.
Top 3 songs: Drivin', How I Love You, Perfect Strangers
Least favorite song: Elephant (not counting Screw because its an instrumental interlude)
The three songs to open up this album really set the tone. The first song is in the third person and tells an overall story of a relationship. How two people meet as strangers and quickly decide they like each other, only to eventually really get to know one another and have that feeling wear off. Its not bitter or angry, just the natural progression of love and relationships.
Drivin' is my favorite song by a long shot. It tackles the boredom and mundane misery of being stuck. Stuck in a town. In a relationship. Just stuck. There is no excitement left. No love left. It is about a man driving around town looking to do anything but be at home with his girl. I wish you'd go to bed, without the expectation that I'll come up there and say something to help you feel like things aren't such a mess, I'll just sweep the floor and clean the desk, put up the dishes and then fold some clothes I guess.
skip to the 4:00 mark for Drivin'
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
