Pop - Alternative

Dear Listener, Many of these songs were recorded live in the comfort of my living room, several with nothing more than two microphones and a CD burner. The reason for this is to simply allow you the chance to experience the art in its purest form. I hope you enjoy this CD as much as I have creating it. Thank you for your support. Sincerely, Joshua Slamp -------------- Self-Titled CD Review Another self-written, self-titled, self-played and self-produced CD. Except this one has the notable distinction on being very, very good. Can I get away with calling it a slamp-dunk? Joshua Slamp has created an eclectic mix of songs, about half of them instrumental, with a lush diversity. Acoustic guitar is prominently featured, but electric is represented as well as some nicely placed violin. Slamp describes some of these instrumentals as mere "noodling," but he's selling himself short. Several are distinctive jazz-flavored pieces, each executed with great precision. "Take a Hike" stands out here, not just for the beautifully swelling organ notes but for the George Benson-like electric guitar riffs. There is an understated masculinity to this music, despite its exquisite tenderness. Maybe it's the deep Lou Reed vocals, but I think it goes deeper than that, to the actual structures of these unique songs. The spooky pacing of "Letting Go" sets a mood for the project, and the stark beauty of "One Memphis Night" confirms it. Most of the songs time out at around three minutes, and there is a well-constructed flow to the CD, the instrumentals placed perfectly within the framework. "Irvington" stands out for its happy little melody, and the layered guitar work of "Diestro" closes things out nicely with its tight groove. An impressive debut.
