The first tune that opens Brandon Thomas De La Cruz Bandcamp release Everything Is New immediately reminds me of the early stuff by Will Shepp and Okkervil River. Something in the raw feeling that present in the album brings to my mind the duet they did with Daniel Johnston.
His songs are delicate, modest and simple, and therefor very emotional, beautiful and touching. I like the sound aesthetics, effortless, minimal, and again – simple. That’s the name of the game here, good songwriting, doesn’t need much more.
