Nervous Water Drinking News (from upcoming demo)
Some days ago I got a curious email I first thought of as a hoax for it was written in a very taciturn way. But as things turned out I was wrong with my assumption and it was a serious submission. Ian Link, a young singer-songwriter from Detroit sent over the first three tracks (ruff cut versions) from his upcoming 6 song demo. He recorded them in a Detroit bathroom and hopes that some listeners will find them quiet enjoyable. The three tracks are bluesy with singer-songwriter and country influences – and as lo-fi as lo-fi bathroom records can be. Bathroom Ballad is a track I really enjoy and which reminds me a little bit of The Mountain Goats – but only very slightly I have to acknowledge. The other two tracks are good too, so don’t miss to check them out. I think Ian got plenty of potential to record a good first demo and I wish him luck finding some interested ears in the future. As soon as new material is available I will update you.
