Funny Little Dream by Aaron Abramowitz: Album Review
Aaron Abramowitz arrives with a fresh record of piano rock that sets the mood just right. Their album entitled “Funny Little Dream” is a fantastic collection of music that resonates immensely, and is simply an easy-listening experience. The aforementioned instrument takes center stage and a passionate singer tags along. Aside from that a diversity of timbres is also present in different patterns. So, that being said, let’s dive into the album!
The record opens up with the powerful piece “Berkeley.” It’s an intense piano-driven track that starts with intimate poetry and transcends into a crescendo of drums and guitar. Eventually, an emotional ride through narrative and melody greets us in “Broken World.” There’s so much weight in this song and it got me hooked immediately. A simple beat kept the tempo consistent, however, the sliding guitar solos and verses were pretty sentimental. A bit of fun and a bit of blues takes effect in the song “Drown.” It’s a playful tune with a jazzy piano and bass intro that transitions into this funky mix. Furthermore, the beautiful melancholy of “Sam” tugged on my heartstrings, and man I needed that. From time to time, you just gotta hear something that makes you human, and Aaron Abramowitz created something beautiful in that regard.
The album ends with the self-titled track, and it’s a cozy listening experience. A bit of folk with acoustic guitars accompanies the tune and a chill whistling solo too!
