joplin rice - low hum

prolific lexington, kentucky based lofi bedroom recording singer/songwriter joplin rice is back, under his own name this time (as opposed to the more stripped down releases under the moniker ezra triste) with an excellent album of fuzzy, personal folk/pop/rock called 'low hum'.

there are catchy melodies and moments of lyrical vulnerability on 'low hum', it's not as dark or shambolic as its epic predecessor 'spine adagio part II and the prince', but in that way it shows rice's growth as a songwriter. and don't get me wrong, its still pretty dark. my favorite moments on this album are when rice lets loose with a fuller production style, such as the sunny jam 'lucky man' or the concise, jealous fuzz rocker 'coffee'. i recommend checking this one out.

name your price for it here. if you pay five bucks or more, you get a five song bonus EP along with it.
