Narrow Is This Ghost Town
 
Narrow Is This Ghost Town Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $10.00
Artist: Johnny Stanec
 
 
Quantity:
 
FIRST IN SPACE ALERT! At the end of 2010 First In Space decided to go on indefinite hiatus due to changing directions in the band. Having built up a stah of songs he'd written over the past three years, Johnny Stanec, singer/guitarist/songwriter for the band, wanted to continue on his own. His music has been described as "emotionally honest rock and roll that puts an emphasis on lyrics and melodies. Musically a cross between early Neil Young/Jesse Malin and the guitar-pop of The Stone Roses/Gin Blossoms." This, his first solo album, was recorded over the winter and early spring of 2011. With a few exceptions. all the instrumentation on the record is performed by Johnny (and quite well, we might add). Full of well-crafted alternative, roots pop, the record features upbeat rockers and midtempo ballads that deviate very little from the sound of his former band. "An amazing grouping of fun and relevant tunes, this record is simply awesome! I loved First IN Space, and it's nice to see Mr. Stanec deliver (as expected) this solid gem of jangly, melodic, rootsy pop that continues in the fine tradition of First IN Space. He sounds relaxed and in a groove, bu there is tighter production and performances on these songs - and he has never sounded better. Yes, the Gin Blossoms comparisons are inevitable, but that's fine with me. Sometimes change for change sake isn't a good thing, and sometimes it's comforting to know what you can expect from an artist whose music you're a big fan of. This is the kind of record you can leave on and casually realize you have listened to it entirely two or three times (e.g. road trip) without getting remotely bored." - MR Gomez If you liked First IN Space, you'll certainly like this! GREAT!!!
