Brandon Hurtado Buried in Rain
off the new year and midwinter with a softly-strummed bang in Brandon
Hurtado’s “Buried in Rain.” Beautifully composed and recorded songs
with a distinct solemnity and effortless force that set tones for short
winter nights and cloudy skies. There is hope and catharsis in here,
too, but the journey always takes longer than planned. To me, “Buried
in Rain” is as if a pretty ambient tape and some lost Codeine cassette
melted together on your car’s dashboard, but into a shape close enough
to the original to still be played in the stereo. All the fuzz and hiss
and distant, moving vocals you need to make it through the cold months.
This is a deep, deep listen. Edition of 50 pro-dubbed, Type II/Chrome
cassettes with full-color, double-sided artwork.
