Best Album of 2015 To: Put On While Making A Cigar Box Guitar

First Bite: “Oh My”

An early contender for my year-end list, Make Time is like a best friend. No matter how long it’s been since I last enjoyed its company, it feels familiar. Its first track starts like a Sunday morning, a slow, hazy return to reality. That lazy morning doesn’t last long though, as it transitiions into urgency accompanied by grungy blues guitar. If only I had a reason to feel as badass as the music while brushing my teeth, as the music suggests. Each feeling commonly felt on any given day gets a nod throughout the album until we finally arrive at the end, where a relaxing, beautiful sunset marks the finale.
