Augie March - One Crowded Hour EP
The song starts with a slow electric guitar and amazing singing that starts telling an amazing story, and with lyrics like this;
"But for one crowded hour, you were the only one in the room
And I sailed around all those bumps in the night to your beacon in the gloom
I thought I had found my golden September in the middle of that purple June
But one crowded hour would lead to my wreck and ruin"What an amazing song writer that Glenn Richards, just a truly brilliant song that gets into your head and you end up playing it over and over again.
The next song is 'There Is No Such Place (Acoustic Version)' which is another slow song, where the lyrics and acoustic guitar are a perfect combination, these guys sure know how to create a song, everything in this song belongs together, fits with each other and they should seriously teach other people how to actually write music and lyrics because they are that good and this song proves it again.
We then move onto 'Passed Out In Clarkefield' a real soulful and slow song with a great drum intro that sets the tone of the whole song. The guitar is fantastic, this song is a standout on this EP , the vocals, the guitar, the drumbeat, this song is so beautiful, so catchy and oh so perfect.
'Asleep In Perfection' is the next track and again the vocals are amazing, the music so hauntingly beautiful, they are true musicians and that is what draws you in, they understand how to make music and this track is no exception, beautiful, deep and meaningful, I can't say anymore. The last track is 'Clockwork' a true acoustic masterclass from these guys, this song has such an emotional quality to it, that leaves you longing for more. The acoustic versions of their songs on this album, give their lyrics a great depth and deeper meaning than the standard versions, which is why I recommend this album.
All up this masterclass of pure music genius and deserves, 5 shots of whiskey out of 5! I highly recommend this album to anyone who believes that songwriting is a dying artform, that music can still move you and to Augie March I say a massive "Thank You!"
