Boomkat Product Review:
This, the third album from songwriter Drew Isleib was originally conceived as a companion piece to his 100 Day Couch Tour, a venture which saw him drifting from town to town in America, hobo-style, looking for sympathetic audiences to allow him to perform in their living rooms and put him up for the night. Fittingly, Landing is an album recorded domestically, and clearly that's a setting he's comfortable with as a performer. The first thing that strikes you about this album is the brevity of the songs, with only two tracks here breaching the three-minute mark. It's Isleib's deft ability to write concise pop music that's key to the success of this album, with many of the songs predominantly made of choruses. 'Lost/Locked' touches upon Evan Dando-style FM-friendly upbeat gloss. 'What Was Strange' ploughs a similar furrow to the Beatles-influenced lo-fi acoustics of early Elliott Smith, albeit without the emotional intensity. In fact, if there is a major criticism to be leveled at Islaib, it's that his work is all a bit cheery. And it's not often you get to say that about a set of home-recordings from a twenty-something male singer/songwriter, is it?
