Thanksgiving – “Thanksgiving” – [Marriage Records]

Thanksgiving is Portland-based Adrian Orange. Bedroom-sounding recordings from Adrian Orange who has been compared to Will Oldham with his styling. His songs are simple and perplexing at the same time. Most of the tracks are just his pastoral lyrics with acoustic guitar accompaniment. His vocals can be slightly off-key and have obscure lyrical content and themes. Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t. The one thing you don’t doubt on this recording is his passion for the message. Adrian throws himself fully into his songs. This release never lets you get overly comfortable by tossing in the occasional track to throw of your equilibrium. Adrian Orange has been putting out albums since he was in high school; he is only 20 and has already released 10 separate recordings. Expect many more recordings from Adrian Orange. This album was hit and miss at times, a little raw. — Numa
