FIRST LISTEN: HIDING FACE
A quick punch to the emotional gut is all the introduction Hiding Face needs with the new track 'Dreamer.' Lot's of 'when I...' scenarios, showing the subject a bit stripped of what was once some passionate times and feelings. It's what you'd expect from a project titled 'Terrible Things: In Memory Of Jenny.' But the song is so damn sweet, with it's innocent melody and rattling acoustic strings chirped high with each quick bronze and nickel strum. Adding to the triumphant sorrow of the tune is a low registered voice similar to that of Berninger (National) or Everett (Eels). After this tune, we hope Hiding Face comes out of the shadows a bit more.
