Greater California - Somber Wurlitzer (2004)


Slow-burning, Wurlitzer-fueled indie rock. Quite an apt, if on-the-nose album title, as, despite some sonic references to kaleidoscopic 60s-psych-pop, Somber Wurlitzer is a lonely, nocturnal record defined by its somber mood and the watery sound of the Wurlitzer piano. I know that it can be kinda obnoxious when people tell you 'how' to listen to a record -- especially when it more-or-less amounts to "get stoned" -- but I truly recommend listening to this after dark, and if that means you're stoned, all the better.

Track listing:
1. The Appearing
2. Missing Summer
3. Looking In
4. May Day
5. Jersey Thursday
6. In Scarlet
7. Patterns
8. Reappearing
9. Portuguese Hall
10. Somber Wurlitzer
11. Breathe [bonus]
