atlanta based southern bedroom jangle popper attic fowler (chris rutledge) has a great record on his hands with his self titled debut. at their hearts, the tunes on this album are great hazy/lazy guitar pop, catchy and memorable.
they stand out because of chris's distinctive southern psych guitar playing and distant, reverby vocals that blend together to create and inviting, honey like warmth. but these atmospherics, as pleasing as they are, would not be effective if the songs themselves were not so well crafted.
get it on limited edition cassette from fall break records. it sounds great this way, i know, because i got one! you can also get it digitally here and here.
