Okay, so, don’t kill me for this, but upon a first impression Brian Jacobs struck me as a sort of male Tori Amos still in-utero. He has the same unenunciated pronunciation with a combination of supported notes and airy treads into his higher register, and the sort of plodding momentum of piano Tori’s mid-tempo work demonstrates, and his lyrics are obscure enough to be sure. Think “Siren.” After listening to some of his mp3 tracks i’m hungry to hear a full band behind him, and to learn a bit more. I’m not going to engage in the sort of idle criticism i would usually make at this point, because Brian is much nearer to someone i could imagine myself in the same relative orbit as if i ever got outside this apartment and tried. But, anyway, listen to him when you get tired of my expansive post-25/24 song catalogue. Blogged via JoeyRoo, who links me! Yay!
