From the music of his sophomore LP You, Forever, It’s easy to see how New York songwriter Sam Evian has scored opening slots for bands like Whitney and Teenage Fanclub. The influence of the former is particularly strong on this album, a collection of wistful jangles that owes quite a debt to bands like The Byrds. The reel-to-reel machine used to track You, Forever lends the record a nice sheen of authenticity too.
Premium is the debut album of Sam Evian, who makes classic-sounding soulful pop music through a shiny contemporary dream-electronic filter. It’s an effective (and affecting) approach! Personnel include Shahzad Ismaily, two members of Here We Go Magic and the saxophonist from the Colbert show. Premium is out on Saddle Creek.
