Ontario based indie rock artist, Ed Roman released his newest album entitled “Letters from High Latitudes” on March 19, 2014. Something extremely interesting and unique about this album is that Ed performs 90% of the instruments on his album, recording drums, bass, guitars, organs, vocals and even sitar.
The album starts with an instrumental track, “Tinker”. I am not usually a fan of this type of track. That being said, I enjoyed it. It’s got a fun, upbeat sound that keeps you interested throughout the whole track. Each song on the album is different than the last, but each so full of energy that they pull you in and make you want to dance around your house.
The third song, “Better Day Blues” is one of my favourites on the album, as it radiates energy through the whole song and I enjoy Ed’s vocals. “Roly’s Cottage” is another extremely fun track on the album. Ed has many interesting sounds that are put together to make an entirely unique sound that you wouldn’t expect, but I can say that I enjoyed to no end.
If you’re into finding new and interesting artists that put themselves fully into their music, this is one for you! Ed Roman has a completely unique sound, and I can guarantee you will find at least a few songs on here that will appeal to you.
