Andrew Combs (from the album Sundays on Tone Tree Music/Andrew Combs) (by Bryant Liggett)
Andrew Combs Sundays is a morning album. The kind of record you’ll carefully drop a needle onto before anyone else in your home awakes, a quiet, dark Folk record where carefully played melodies back hushed vocals.
The opener could be a Gothic Gospel cut or anti-Gospel cut, where Andrew Combs shames humanity for past and notably future crimes, as ‘we are capable of such a mess’. Yet he’s questioning higher existence due to everyday atrocities, as ‘god still lives on in godlessness’. Not only relying on heady lyrics, the fuzzy-psych guitar solo is a great piece of the tune. There’re also welcoming phrases, simple drops like ‘sometimes it’s so nice when the night is on my side’ from “Still Water” is as comforting as it is catchy.
The bulk of Sundays offers consistent, downbeat, and inclusive rhythms. Then there’s gems like “Anna Please” and “Truth of Love”, offering head-bobbing, catchy pulses, and a favorite of the album in “Down Among the Dead”. It’s a grooving mover, where a heavy saxophone booms and pushes electronic pulses and a punky guitar solo.
Andrew Combs delivery of everything instrumentally and lyrically is both moody and mysterious. It’s an attractive element on top of a subtleness that is a key component to the records shadowy sound.
