"Clues" by Aaron Mayer Frankel (Acoustic Artist from Illinois(IL))

"Clues" brought to you by Aaron Mayer Frankel is a hauntingly quirky folk album. Aaron's quivering, deep and soulful voice is right out in front with creative guitar progressions and various other organic sounds behind him. The album has that great "right in the room with you" production quality. It grabs your ear and makes you hang on every word, as the lyrics are well paced and interesting. The title track, "Clues" is the catchiest and most radio-ready track with stop-start rhythms, great guitar work and refreshingly original lyrics. "Horrible Suburban Little Deaths" invites you to clap along to domestic animal catastrophes. "After the Wave" is another "story of a song" and features great guitar work and creepy accordian. If you like Nick Drake or Leonard Cohen, you will like this one.
