A Mark on the Pane (Pop Boomerang Records)
By: Alex Steininger
Rainy day, semi-sad acoustic-based indie-pop-meets-folk, Tamas Wells'A Mark on the Pane is the offering of a man that is sad, but not depressed, working through his feelings with a dose of pop to help affect the listener while giving the songwriter something to perk up about. Gorgeous and subdued, here is an album that crawls along, giving extra thought to each note - and word - before offering them up to the listener. It's not complex music, either. To the contrary, the melodies are simple, but it is the way they are delivered, brushed up with an ethereal air to it, giving the songs that red-eyed, late-night, remembrance that we've all experienced more than once, as we contemplate everything extra carefully while snuggling up to our favorite record. This is the perfect record for that occasion. I'll give it a B+.
