Seasons change and with the kids returning back to school, we have new music from Mason Proper's prolific mastermind Jonathan Visger. When things begin to quiet down momentarily for Mason Proper [whose Olly Oxen Free made our 20 Albums from 2008 you Need to Own list] Visger decided it wasn't time to take a break. He periodically shares new songs under the pen name Absofacto. This is one of those times. Listen for his characteristic style: melancholy songcraft, super-clean sound on top of small bits of ethereal, other-worldly extras. Listen and you'll know what I mean.
A Few Words from the Artist: "I had a completely different song all ready to release a couple weeks ago, but at the last second it got earmarked for inclusion as the b-side on a 7", which left me with no song for you. So I whipped out the ol' acoustic guitar and amazingly, 45 minutes later I had a song. I haven't been able to write that fast in a long time, but I made my way pretty easily from line to line. It felt pretty good!"
