Shades are Drawn
I wasn't familiar with Finian McKean's former band, Push Kings, but I am really enjoying the tracks I've heard from his recently-released solo LP, Shades Are Drawn.
Blackbook Magazine says McKean's solo work is "emotional and eerie, but still accessible...His music, for now, is what keeps him from running into the woods, and will provide you, too, with some satisfying four-minute escapes."
This particular "four-minute escape" has been helping me get through the day at work today:
