DIVIDED/HEAVEN: Pacific Avenue: CD

Nov 22, 2017

Freaking ugh. Singer/songwriter’s “band” specializing in songs that could/should be licensed out to nighttime teen dramas on the Fox network. Said singer/songwriter notes the songs were written in a journal he got from friends, which reminds him of his time writing songs in Berlin. Although some songs were given away to other bands (manna from heaven?) and some were on Divided Sky’s first album, some are also representing the sound of his new home, Los Angeles. This whole affair feels so inauthentic I can’t even objectively listen to it. –Garrett Barnwell (This Is LA, dividedheaven.com)
