every once in a while, and sadly it doesnt happen much any more, but there are times when you put on a record, or an ep as it were, and you just immediately gravitate to the sound. thus is the case with baltimorian paul michael masson and his recently released and most excellent self titled ep. plainly put, this ep is one of the best collection of songs that ive heard in a while. granted its only 5 songs, but taking it for what it is, its spectacular. his voice is great, the lyrics are smart without seeming like he’s trying too hard, and the instrumentation is lovely – think ray lamontagne but with much better songs with the exception of “jolene.” i dont want to get too excited about mr masson’s work, cause i have been let down before, see artist in question one sentence up, but i got a good feeling about him. you can pick up the ep on emusic and itunes and its highly recommended that you do so….
