Review | Andy Ferro - Muirhead

There is an odd intimacy that comes from strumming the guitar with a certain rhythm. It's reminiscent of parties around bonfires or in basements, quiet and vulnerable. On Muirhead, Andy Ferro slyly mixes this sort of intimacy with haunting instruments and sounds. The result is a collection of songs that are reminiscent of the indie rock of the early 90's, sad-yet-jangly, but with an added emotional edge. "Sugar and Milk" is probably the most radio-ready cut, but "Hood" and "Useless Powder" are standout tracks as well. Close your eyes, and you're in a clearing miles away from town, looking up at the stars by the light of a crackling fire.
