Because there’s no better way to describe Try The Pie’s Rest, here’s a quote from HHBTM: “It’s a record so intimate it feels like you’re eavesdropping.” These are bedroom recordings from San Jose-based musician and artist Bean Tupou. Every song is a sparse landscape populated by ghostly vocals and a warm acoustic guitar and ukulele. Think Mirah, Badlands, and Joe Jack Talcum. It’s cathartic to listen to something so minimal albeit melodically rich. Ultimately, your enjoyment of Rest depends on your ability to relate to the sentiments and appreciate the sincerity.
