Best of 2018 #46: Chris Abelen – “Songs On the Eve Of Dismissal”


This gospel for a cubicle life captures the angst of the career employee, and it does it with a seriousness and sense of humor, both.  And Chris Abelen doesn’t treat the subject like some superficial topic.  There’s a sincerity throughout that is unmistakable.  There’s also a series of catchy melodies and engaging grooves that makes this album very easy to like.  It’s a little something different, but delivered in a way that feels comfortingly familiar.  Lorena del Mar‘s vocal antics really cinch this album as a winner.

The album is Self-Produced.

Music from Haarlem, Netherlands.
