Brian Dunn - Broken is Good

Brian Dunn's Examining the Fallout has been out for just over a month, and if you haven't given it a listen, now's the time. I love a guy who can make me feel hopeful on the musical, melodical end while singing lyrics to a song called Listening to Myself Die. Some of these songs are almost a shambles, but not quite, reining in looseness before it falls apart. I've never been a big fan of the kind of shambolic rock made by, for example, Broken Social Scene, but that kind of laid-back style works well for alt country as made by Dunn and others like Ox, wistful, bittersweet, and worthy of repeated listens.

If you're like me and like to listen without being distracted by visuals, listen away using the player below, then you don't need to try not to peek at your monitor.
