A Personal and Honest Release from Tim Shez

A beautiful new EP release from Tim Shez breeds a very lush character in the form of honest and upfront singer-songwriter and folk songs that each give you a glimpse into his persona and inner thoughts which is a huge part of what you end up getting attached to in the end.

This Lingering Lament is an EP that feels like it must have been cathartic for him to write and release because he's certainly wearing his heart on his sleeves and a lot of these songs are so heavily emotionally driven that it must have felt good to get it off of his chest and out into the world where others can hear it.

The beautiful thing about a record like this is that you can relate to a lot of it so much that it causes memories of your own to pop into your head at random and this is a beautiful connection that rarely happens these days so when it does it's incredibly refreshing.

This is a much more of a stripped-down acoustic guitar and vocals type of record and that's where the whole folk and singer-songwriter aesthetic comes in but Tim utilizes classic influences of his own and turns out his own unique kind of sound as well but again, it's that character that's involved with the songs that you get connected to straight away.

Some tracks are so descriptive at times that you can paint vivid pictures in your head while at other times you can feel the emotion or purpose that the track was written from in the first place.

Either way, you end up thinking and feeling and I think it's really important that we have more music like this because songs that make you think or feel, or both, are very important in the world of art in general.

The thing about records like this is that you can relate to them because we all have strong feelings and emotions whether negative or positive, struggles or happiness, either way it's very hard for us to be able to express those thoughts or those feelings the way that people like Tim can weave them into words and music.

This is why we rely on music and art like this to lean on so that we don't feel alone in certain situations.

A lot of us simply can't articulate those emotions into anything physical so when we hear an EP like this week grab and hold on to it as long as we can.

Maybe that's what its actual purpose was. I'm not sure but either way, this was wonderfully woven and every single second of it came from someplace authentic.

This EP was insightful, descriptive, posted mass personality, honest, wonderfully woven, and performed with heart.

I'm not sure what more you could ask for from a record like this.

I'm giving this an 8 out of 10 easily because this record is definitely going to stay with me for a while.

If I were you, I'd listen to this record in full, from beginning to end with headphones on and no interruptions because that's just the best way to soak it in properly.
