Ο frontman των The National, Matt Berninger, κυκλοφορεί το ντεμπούτο του solo album με τίτλο “Serpentine Prison”.
Σε παραγωγή του Booker T. Jones.
“Producer and famed multi-instrumentalist Booker T. Jones surrounds Berninger with ornamental instrumentation, allowing gently picked guitar and funereal horns to provide the backdrop for his dark ruminations. Sparse organ notes make the tale feel more immediate; it’s like hearing a longtime denizen of a backroom bar muttering to the strains of a country ballad on the jukebox.”
“[Album track ‘One More Second’] starts out as a minimal and meditative acoustic tune, but soon expands with shuffling drums, rich organ, blooming backing vocals and even
a tasteful—and slightly off-kilter—piano solo.”
“Laced with horns and produced by Memphis-bred master Booker T. Jones…
the ten originals are downright soulful.”
“Serpentine Prison features the same heady baritone and moody lyrics that are cornerstones of the National’s brand. But without Aaron and Bryce’s complementary guitars, Bryan’s anchoring drums and Scott’s reverberating bass, the mellow sound carrying over is decidedly Berninger’s, fine-tuned by longtime producer Booker T. Jones.”
“a sparkling and introspective collection of songs”
