ben lowry is a nashville based singer/songwriter, but not in the mainstream country sense. the sounds on his new album 'somnium' are eclectic but seem to be rooted in a sense of americana. a loosely plucked banjo is consistent through the variety of tones.
the lush acoustic production and the dark twists and turns of the mysterious and winding songs impart a subtle psychedelia. some fine harmonies here and there add to the full atmosphere.
