You can definitely tell Andrew Buczek has spent some time playing music. His project Coastal Car centers around nine well crafted tracks. These tunes are delicately spun to hold so much weight. Was interested and went to Coastal Car's bandcamp page to hear Andrew slightly more stripped down. He has a digital release titled sweetness and light that helped in understanding the talent permeating from the core. Lossless, the newer release on Already Dead Tapes and Records plays more upbeat and is a culmination of snowballing experience. Comparing the two helps gain insight on Andrew's roots and where his sound stems from.
Call it what you want, genres and labels are irrelevant. There is excellent guitar playing and well written lyrics. Every song has meaning and depth. That is what it's all about. This is real and really good. You can hear tons of influences in Lossless and that is the magic. Like a brew with so many pinches of different things resulting in a specific purposeful potion. Coastal Car preforms sophisticated bedroom lullabies, you will be following the melodies and singing to yourself. And every time you listen it gets better...
Released on Already Dead Tapes and Records in November. An edition of sixty now down to seven on the labels bandcamp page. Another amazingly solid Already Dead release.
