Garrett Mason 

Love & Sound


Garrett Mason
Love & Sound
(Soul in Sound)
The second release from Garrett Mason reminds you that some musicians tighten the screws on themselves. Whether cranking it out to overcome crappy sound in the club or, as is the case on Love & Sound, losing the compression and other tools that clean upthe sound in studio and letting it all hang out and loose, Mason follows his gut and takes risks. Sure, lyrics are largely throwaway (occasionally cliche) but the voice is lithe and soulful. There's intermittent reliance on overused phrasing ("Pink Flamingos" is a patchwork of styles, most notably Stevie Ray Vaughan on "Scuttle Buttin'"), but the overall screws-loose approach makes a deep impression. ---Sean Flinn
