Review: Greater Pyrenees – ‘Greater Pyrenees’

Greater Pyrenees released their self-titled album on April 15th. The album was full of acoustic goodness and is calming to listen to. I found myself enjoying it as I skimmed through some articles. Sometimes multitasking can take away from my ability to listen to music at the same time, but this album was so soothing, I began ignoring my reading for brief periods of time to soak in the music. You can tell the band put a part of themselves into the writing and recording of this album. It’s heartfelt and catchy.

“It Moves” opens up the album and sets the tone and style for the rest. I personally really loved the fast-paced acoustic guitar of “In Two,” which is the eighth of ten tracks. Eventually I stopped reading completely and focused my attention on the second half of the album. It’s safe to say that I’ll have this album playing for quite some time to come. The soothing vocals and acoustic focused music is perfect for a lazy afternoon. The album closes out with “Simple” and it left me feeling like I just listened to a very well put together album while still wanting to hear more from the band. I look forward to what they do next.
