For anyone like me who enjoys some really immaculate music check this album out! Trevor DeVine and the Immaculate Beings have put out quite the creative effort with Free. The album goes through a lot of really colorful direction musically and lyrically, always keeping the listener interested and in touch with where the music is going. Lead vocalist and guitarist Trevor DeVine explores his creativity through this effort.
Recording and sound production are spot on with this album, really helping paint a portrait of what these songs represent. There is much inspiration pulled from such acts as Alabama Shakes, Leon Bridges and Edward Sharpe. The combo is done quite tastefully and originally which helps create such a dynamic interlude of creative music.
“Teach Me to Love Again’ is sweet poetry matched with an excellent arrangement of instruments from the backing band and killer soloist. There is a smooth jazz funk flow within this album as “How To Love Again” just grooves with DeVine’s vocals killing it. It is almost like a Talking Heads type vocal presentation just with a much more powerful singer leading the way through the instrumentation.
“Tear Me Apart” is another banger. This one I can see the Alabama Shakes inspiration just down a little heavier. The guitars are produced very well in the song and help guide the arrangement dynamically
“40” has some wonderful singing in it from DeVine who really commands each song. The guitar work is very well catered to the song and has a funky sort of rhythm that keeps dancing. This album was a hit from production quality to lyricism, to musicianship and concept.
I loved just about every song; it didn’t feel like songs were forced just to meet some sort of demand. Everything is free flowing and grooves so well I can’t wait to see what the band have in store next!
