Earlimart: Treble & Tremble
Buy! - (Palm Pictures)
Earlimart frontman Aaron Espinoza wrote the songs for this album in response to the death of his friend Elliott Smith. While Smith’s influence was apparent on Earlimart’s last album (2003’s excellent Everyone Down Here), his spirit looms large over these mostly piano-based compositions ranging from intimate folk-pop to experimental psych-rock. Combining dark melodies with introspective lyrics and hushed vocals, Treble & Tremble is a beautiful, heartbreaking homage to the melancholy magic of Smith’s music. 8/30/2004 - Don Yates
