Greg Weeks

Fumbling around some semi-older records, I somewhat re-discovered Greg Weeks , and I'm very glad I did. There is something about the melodies that Weeks writes; they stick with me. I find myself humming them at the most random moments. This is a good thing. There something about the resonant factor of noise he weaves in an out of songs. Like sounds you would hear on a Soft Machine record placed in these well-rounded floor-gazing, folk tunes.

2001's Awake Like Sleep is an experimental record. Ethereal woodwinds, organs, bedroom electronics alongside simple, yet touching lyrics.

On the 2002 release Slightly West , he makes some what of a return to his folkier side, but is still willing to take risks as far as what sounds are safe, because really who needs safe all the time.
