La Distancia
Trevor Smith Music
Street: 11.20.12
Eyes on Kites = The Album Leaf + Tycho
From the onset of listening to this album, I was intrigued, and multiple listenings have only opened up more of that initial fascination. I’m partial to compositions that lack lyrics, with the notion that they can free your mind in a way that words limit you. Throughout La Distancia, Trevor Smith has placed together a world of dreamy and soothing compositions that are conducive to an untying of thoughts. The comfort is reflected in the song titles, with ìPlay Fights in the Kitchenî and ìHidden Mothersî expressing a homey perspective. I’d recommend this album to be used as a study aid or to be played to ease tension.
