Hidden In The Sun – “Seven Seasons” – [Self Released]
This debut full-length album from the San Francisco-based group comes complete with lyrics in an insert! Lizzie Clapper’s vocals are hearty and distinctive, and the rest of the quintet add their own magic to the mix that can be broadly characterized as American roots infused with blues and rock. The ballads stand out for me, especially “Gun Song,” and “Seven Seasons” as well as “Roulette” pick up the tempo. There is synth, soul, and most of all, heart, in this music.
