Artist Name:Justin M. Wilsey
On a superficial first listen, it sounds like a new interpretation of an obscure Tom Petty or Neil Young song, but its real pleasures are unveiled with repeated listens, and weeks later, the song will set up a cozy residence in your head as an unusual, but pleasurable earworm.
Depending on your taste, and depending on how you like your alt-rock, this is almost experimental in a way, as there are a few interesting things going on here. All of which lend the recording an air of authenticity, of looseness and candidness, far removed from all the well-rehearsed sugary pop we’re used to on the radio.
Justin M. Wilsey dials back the finesse and pushes towards the boundaries, leaving you with the impression of an artist genuinely expressing himself.
