Music Reviews

Gaines’s pain manifests itself through words and guitar strums. It is evident that Jeffrey must square his shoulders and face this cruel world every single day. The cat is out of the bag, this singer/songwriter tells tales of ordinary loss in a monumental fashion. To help support his broken soul, Gaines leans on a pretty strong musical cast. The most notable here is Reeves Gabrels, lending electric bliss and atmospheric looops. But what is this? Hey, there is another disc stuffed in the back here. More Galore! Four songs from a different era. In Your Eyes (Gabriel), Villier’s Terrance (Echo), Win (Bowie) and Riot Act (Costello) are executed beautifully, taking a life all their own through Gaines. This alone is worth the trip. Gaines’s pain manifests itself through words and guitar strums. It is evident that Jeffrey must square his shoulders and face this cruel world every single day.
