The title track from D.C. Anderson’s i am still release starts on a somber note. Just piano and his made-for-musical-theater voice singing of “thistles where there once was grass.” But listen for a moment and hear the acoustic guitar add delicate touches as Anderson fleshes out a story of an abandoned hotel—from the hotel’s point of view. The unusual perspective coupled with the sonic sparseness of the song proves quite refreshing.
The rest of the album offers equal parts comedy and drama. From the hilarious “Jury Duty Girlfriend” (“How long can she resist? I’m the only guy who’s single, let’s turn this trial into a tryst”) to the moving “Sad Man,” written after the death of his mother, Anderson paints pictures that you’ll want to keep hanging in your mind.
