RIYL: Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, Elliott Smith, Tallest Man on Earth
Label: Asthmatic Kitty
One the the best artists of our time (IMO) is out with another LP, titled¬†Tomb.¬†Angelo has a way of grasping your attention and lets you lean on every word and note to compose heart melting songs that transcend the laws of emotion. We had a glimpse at his ability in his previous LP and single, but this album highlights the lyricist abilities and talent. Check out the single ‘Time’ which is backed by Sufjan Steven and grab your copy of the red or yellow version, if you’re down. Available at their bandcamp site as well. Note: There was a red/yellow transitional vinyl available but it has since sold out.
Tomb¬†reflects a beginning for Angelo — both emotionally and in his career. It‚Äôs a motion towards positivity, addressing lost love, the worthwhile cost of honesty, and the ramifications of regret. In the end,¬†Tomb¬†isn‚Äôt about burying or hiding something away, it‚Äôs about opening the seal and letting something new emerge. It‚Äôs about telling people how you feel when you feel it, instead of burying everything over the span of years. Like the best heartbreak albums,¬†Tomb¬†transforms inward pain into universal beauty. The songs have helped him to heal and now they can help those who hear them. ‚ÄúThis album is, at its core, a prayer for hope and clarity, and a prayer for love,‚ÄĚ Angelo says.
