Andy Burns - "Excited"

(Z Tapes)

Excited, a polished, lighthearted, and clever release by Tokyo-based artist Andy Burns, consists of gorgeously layered beds of perky, memorable arrangements that serve as the perfect background for Andy's unique lyrics and delivery.

From the opening title track, the well-executed style of this album is evident. Andy Burns sings with a dry, almost bored voice that brings his sometimes humorous lyrics to life. 

"Happy for both of you/

i give it year possibly two"

The instrumentation is ear candy. You'll hear some well-placed guitar and piano parts that make Excited comfortable and engaging, as well as a beautiful violin piece on the song, Matsuri. Overall, Excited is a great album to listen to - and we are - ahem - Excited to see it get a cassette release on Z Tapes.
