“Where the guitar strings makes its rhythm and its melody, it can sometimes make a connection and a spark, right in the middle of a strong emotion. The spark and strong emotions comes from the sentimental sound of Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt on the latest release: “All I Ask Ya, Alaska.” A sweet, concise and simple blend, the musician captures the folk-rock feel and an artful layering of multiple guitar tracks and a great voice.
If you’re familiar with his earlier material, you’ll find great lyrical melodies that sing well pop-rock guitar chords in Beatles-like song structures. This album is a little more different in being the standard verse/chorus, and lyrically driven form of a song but comes off as being slightly sparse, yet more intentional with conveying of the right emotions. Its an easy listen with a comfortable song list – a great album for the summer night jams.”
