Brett Detar--Bird in the Tangle

Brett Detar of both Juliana Theory and Zao fame released a free solo album. It is great! If you are familiar with either of the aforementioned bands, you may be surprised by the direction Brett has gone stylistically. There is no emo, no hardcore or metal. This is simply beautiful alternative country and Americana.

Some of the theme choices are...interesting. The album deals with drugs, drinking, sleeping around, relationships (and broken relationships) but rather than glamorizing these things, it seems to point to the emptiness found in them. That's what I'm pulling from it at least. Let your own discerning ear decipher--but give it a listen--one of my favorite albums of the year.
