Harrison, David: Hum

Inspired by Nick Drake, singer/songwriter David Harrison is creating a stir in his native Liverpool and it's easy to hear why on his debut, Hum. His dusty vocals set against pretty, laid-back soundscapes often consisting of little more than acoustic guitars and minimal programming, effectively create alternatiing musical moods via catchy tunes like "Lost in the Ocean" and "Luminous Circles" and more-reflective pieces such as "Maganda Khar" and "Megan." Elsewhere, "It's Not Your Scene" and "She Loves the Sun" outright (and unexpectedly) rock, and "Lucky Clover" boasts a progressive flute arrangement that reveals Harrison's prog and psychedelic influences. When Harrison is not taking an overtly direct lyrical approach, as he does on "Get Out of My Hair," Hum wallows in sort of an eerie and mysterious otherworld that may appeal to fans of softer progressive music who favor structure over experimentation. Spin this one during some of your quieter moments; for better or for worse, it's guaranteed to alter your mood.
