CD Review: Andy Friedman Shoots Us With "Laserbeams and Dreams"
Andy Friedman is a wizard with his storys and lyrics. In the songs "Motel On The Lake", "Quiet Blues" and "Down By The Willow", Friedman just sets up the backdrop with his in-depth descriptive lyrics and gentle-deep vocals. His voice on "Nothing With My Time" reflect a younger Lou Reed with his talking-style singing. Friedman and his band go a little country with "Oh Pennsylvania", while "Roll On, John Herald" shows us his more experimental side. You hardly notice the absence of drums as Friedman's voice against the acoustic instruments is the perfect blend.
Andy Friedman just finished up an east coast tour, but will be back on the road beginning April 9th. Check out andyfriedman.net for a complete list of tour dates as well as more information on his new album.
