This NY dwelling man has got a beautiful voice no mistake. It's not often I find male timbres so affecting. He's like a really refined Richard Hawley without the '50s obsession. Reading up a little about Jon DeRosa I understand he became deaf in one ear which affected his attitude to music deeply so he started a project called Aarktica. This explains the bubble-like intimacy his lullaby-inducing tones have perhaps? The songs are like yearning wistful gems that come in to dock somewhere between Death Cab For Cutie, Adrian Crowley, Low and the aforementioned Sheffield hep-cat. The music is semi-orchestral chamber pop with lovely post-rock and heartbreak folk touches, it's so warmly produced it hurts. All four songs are lush and somewhat comforting whilst being achingly fragile and sad. I think fans of the last Emma Pollock record may like bits of this too for some reason, harmonic structure maybe? Smooth but irresistible, give Jon your money.
