Home - Lone

Seriously. Reviewing releases from decorative stamp is getting harder and harder. I keep praising each and every one, and I must come across as the world's biggest suck-up. But hey, on the other hand. It's not my fault that they keep releasing simply amazing records. And Lone by Home is no different. Some of you might know him as a part of papervehicle, woolgatherers and being the brother of edison. But after this record, he is sure to be known for simply being an wonderful artist. 
His first solo project is a beautiful and personal one, and it amazes me just how many layers these 10 songs consists of. It's a very accustic record mainly built up around a guitar, lo-fi drum beats, a piano and his own vocals. And no matter if he's rapping or singing, he never stears away from reflection, meditation, revelation and action. It's not surprising that Home is a devoted practitioner of yoga, because this album is truly a journey into this fascinating world of his. I will most definitely keep listening to this record over and over for a long time to come. A masterpiece.

Rating: 8/10
