I love Arclight and thank God, because Ryan Gabel is one of my very best friends. If I didn’t it would make for a lot of awkwardness and anxiety on my part. I start to have panic attacks when someone drunkenly pulls out an acoustic guitar at a party, or asks me to listen to their music and tell them what I think. I’m not very good at lying, or keeping a poker face about anything, so I am thankful that I find everything he does to be pretty visionary. I like Westinghousing a lot, and I’ve even been known to listen to it driving in my car, that’s pretty much the litmus test for me….is this something I can listen to in my car? I also like the direction his post Westinghousing music is taking on. It’s quite different, and definitely in a good way. The “Meh” EP is three tracks, the kind that don’t really fit the past album, or an album to come, and honestly, the only problem I have with it, is that it’s called MEH. To be perfectly honest, I couldn’t get that description out of my mind while listening to it. It was kind of haunting me. Like…what do you think of this?….eh….MEH. It was given this description before I was really able to think of a better one. I think the lesson here isn’t that this is a bad EP, I like the in between tracks, but rather to be careful the titles you give to your own songs. He should have called it THE TERROR MOSQUE EP.
