As I stated in class, it is rare to find an artist that you completely connect with; even rarer is when you find this artist after their first release. You get the experience of following the artist throughout their entire careers, hearing all the changes and growth throughout the years. Initially, I loved Shakey's folk roots and relevant lyrics. This newest release was tabbed as one of the best albums of the year be me (and a few real music critics as well!) and it represents a whole new chapter in Shakey Graves' career. The album is layered, has a polished and smooth feel unlike most of his earlier works and definitely marks a step forward in his still young career, even if it is considered more "pop" by some of his fan base. There is so much out there. Want another gem, try Shakey Graves' (with Esme Patterson) Dearly Departed."
I really like the tempo and the drums and the background I also like the lyrics 8/10
I liked the bass and beat. Lyrics weren't too bad, but this wouldn't be a song I would listen to more than I have to.
Shakey Graves was an interesting artist to put it lightly. At first glance, he seems like the average traveler/ songwriter. However, watching him play completely blew out my expectations. When we watched the music video, i was majorly impressed by the amount of raw skill the man possesses to play several instruments and sing at once. All the instruments form a very lovely folk sound, of which I really enjoyed. The sound of this song in particular sounded a little melancholy, which by this stage in all of our lives, we all can appreciate; including me. My personal favorite thing about this particular song however is his voice. The melodic, and gravelly tone made me feel particular emotions, of which, coincide with the meanings of the song. I can really appreciate this song, 8 out of 10
Great comments Cameron, a pleasure to read.
