Peter Oren - Anthropocene
$10.00 On sale
Bloomington-based singer-songwriter Peter Oren possesses a remarkable singing voice, low and deep and richly textured: as solid as a glacier, as big as a mountain. His songs are direct and poetic, outraged and measured, taking in the entire world from his fixed point of view. Oren attracted the attention of Nashville producer Ken Coomer, the former drummer for Wilco. Together, they assembled a band featuring some of the city's finest session musicians. On Anthropocene they provide stately backing for Oren's songs, with drips of pedal steel and quivers of strings subtly reinforcing his observations about the state of the world.
