Corgan is an artist from Sioux Falls, SD. He just started making music in Feb 2016 and in May 2017 released Not For Me. Suffice it to say it’s about what I expected musically from an artist with almost zero experience. He lightly strums basic chords which could be from a guitar or a ukulele. That's not really the interesting part. The most unique part about his music is his voice. I’m honestly not sure if he has an accent or what but I could barely make out a word he was saying.
He sings about a car crash and a significant other on this EP. “Petrified” is the opening track and what could be considered the most upbeat. He sort of talks, sort of sings “Petrified of who I am and what I have become / What have I become ?I swear this is so dumb I’ll never feel like I do / When I beat this drum.”
Up next is “A Life In The Day” which is deceptively catchy. It's awfully depressing sounding but I really wanted to know who Larry is? He sings about Larry but I can’t say I know the guy.
“Aloha” sounds almost exactly like “A Life In The Day.” There wasn't much distinction to my ears. There was however some distinction on “Hate Song” because it's recorded on piano. I couldn't tell if this song was a joke. The lyrics were so over the top it seemed humorous. He sings, “This is my hate song / And it's a really good hate song / I love this hate song / Almost as much as I hate you.”
Hopefully Corgan can look back on Not For Me as his humble beginning. I've been writing music for almost twenty-five years and trust me when I say I was definitely humbled by earlier work. This is just the beginning of his journey and it looks as if he is already improving with his recent release Mental which contains a vastly different style and flavor.
