“He’s out on a limb to keep you safe from him.”

“Out On A Limb” by Azwel | Azwel is otherwise known as Long Island musician Jason Perrillo, one-man band of, according to his email to me, the Britpop persuasion. Well, yes, I hear a bit of the twee side of the movement on his latest album, From Now On. “Out On A Limb”, the single I’m posting here, is more sunshine-y than I expected. But there are interesting things going on here. The layers are thought out and the result is surprisingly magical. I particularly recommend “Don’t Take It For Granted”, mostly because it’s my kind of lounge, but it is nonetheless a swing I didn’t expect from a mostly electropop affair. His album is available on Bandcamp on a pay-what-you-want basis. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
