Every time I happen across a band with “Bear” or “Bears” in the name I feel obligated to write about it… just ’cause I know my audience loves bears.
So: Today I want to tell you about Jerome Alexander and his one-man-band Message To Bears (For some reason I can’t help but to think this album is speaking directly to me). Self-described as a “Soundscape” of “musical origami”, Alexander’s third album, Folding Leaves, is winter music at it’s finest. Subtle harmonies and gentle vocals lull the listener into montage mode, passing time a little quicker by blurring reality.
Walking to the store? Working around the house? Why not montage instead – with Folding Leaves!
This is good music, and while it may be Birdian musical polyester, amplifying any mood that it comes into contact with, if you are a generally happy person, this album will make you happier.
Good Luck & Go Bears.
