ARTIST: FRED THOMAS
LABEL: POLYVINYL RECORDS
Back in 2015 we covered 'All Are Saved', which was then the latest album from Michigan rocker Fred Thomas, and now in 2017 we have his next opus, 'Changer'. Once again he's worked with producer Drew Vandenberg and the record is available through Polyvinyl Records.
The album is whimsical, with Thomas reflecting upon his life, at this moment and of times gone past. It's positive but dark as well, with the vocals half sung and half spoken. Much like his previous record there's bleak moments but always underpinned with a sense of optimism. Guitars are present, prominently mostly, but certain at times the sounds are more laid back and gentle, led by synths.
