Gem Club – “Breakers” – [hardly art]

I admit at the outset that I’m a sucker for releases that include printed lyrics. I admit that I have a propensity for moping. That said, this is one of those releases that are a joy for me to review. Christopher Barnes’ piano and Kristen Drymala’s cello and bells, along with Barnes’ expressive vocals, work together to etch out songs of lovely pain and sadness. Wistfulness, yearning, nostalgia–they’re all present in spades in these slow, evocative songs. Exquisite and rough cut, like the gem that describes the band’s name.
