LIVING by Something Stranger

LIVING {something stranger}
1. Again, on your feet
2. Take
3. Keep it Real
4. Everything

Something Stranger is an acoustic act from Saint Louis Missouri. Living, featured off on of my favorite labels, Waybridge Records, is a simple four song release to demonstrate what Something Stranger can really do. 
The recordings are of a good quality, and the first song, which, in my opinion is the highlight of the four songs, features a female vocalist which really compliments nicely with the main vocals. Instrumentation is simple, acoustic guitar as the main focal point and an electric guitar playing sweet sweet calm lead parts. As far as acoustic songs go, these are normal, well done acoustic songs. Nothing that you haven't seen before, but nothing that you would hate to listen to. These songs are really chill, and the kind of stuff you can put on and just listen to on repeat while you do something else like house chores or sleep or something. Aaron voice is melancholy and smooth, and this is for sure the kind of release you're going to want to listen to way more than one time, not only to get the full feel of the release, but because they're honestly some good songs.
Like I said, nothing amazing, or mind blowing, but for sure something you should check out. Whenever I hear good acoustic releases like this, I always want to put my guitar back into standard tuning and pick up my own solo project. Check Something Stranger out, you won't regret it.
