Pre Side Of Fall – Eddie Gumucio & The Electrics


The seasons are often a source of inspiration for many writers. There are Vivaldi‘s “The Four Seasons,” Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (though their inspiration isn’t necessarily the seasons), and if you don’t think Norah Jones‘ voice was born of the autumn leaves themselves, you need to give her another listen. The album “Pre Side Of Fall” by Eddie Gumucio & The Electrics has that same feeling. It isn’t fall yet, but it’s coming and this is what it will sound like.

When the album starts out with “Hey You,” it almost sounds like this is going to be a country/folk album. The vocals have long, drawn out vowels and there’s a certain swing to the guitar that makes you want to put on a pair of boots. However, there’s a certain gut behind the vocals – they’re controlled, but gentle. Flowing freely from pitch to pitch, the vocals imitate the breezy fall winds themselves. The instrumentation perfectly accompanies the vocals. There’s a keys solo that is backed up by the guitars and drums that could easily take over the solo for themselves, but hold back and show their expertise in a more supportive role.

The rest of the album shows you the fine line these guys are walking. This is very singer/songwriter inspired with an indie flare and pop-rock catchy choruses. With “Pre Side Of Fall,” you have the inspired creativity of a skilled songwriter, but you’ll still be singing along with them after the first listen.
