Follow The Spark

Cody ChesnuTT “Don’t Follow Me”

It took Cody ChesnuTT about a decade to write, record and release Landing on a Hundred, but unlike a lot of records with an absurdly long gestation period, the album sounds like it actually benefited from all that time and work. ChesnuTT’s vocal takes are warm and soulful, and sound as if the takes were recorded very quickly and without too much fuss. The music, on the other hand, is very carefully sculpted – every note of it sounds very considered. There’s a lot of restraint to the compositions – even a fairly melodramatic cut like “Don’t Follow Me” is measured, as if he just tinkered around until he found just the right level of cinematic bombast to get the mood across.

Buy it from Amazon.
