indieville: review: erik hinds - cerebus (265 words)
Erik Hinds, whose guitar talents are present in bands as diverse as SS Puft, The Georgian Contemporary Unit, and Riveter, has recently turned in Cerebus, a very personal solo album in which he experiments with an acoustic guitar.
The result is a composition that incorporates a whole number of ideas and styles into it, including classical guitar methods, mild experiments, and even a bit of jazz accentuation.
While solo releases can often be self-pretentious and overly experimental, Hinds has shown a very nice deviation from this pattern, instead creating a beautiful, melodic collection of songs that tide well for at-home listening.
