Come Back Down


Almost 2 years ago to the day, I drove a moving truck cross-country from Los Angeles. I had been on I-40 for a day when I looked at my phone to see my mom calling. I realized I had forgotten to tell my parents I was moving to New York - and I am close with my family. Fact is, I hadn’t really told anyone. I had lived in southern California my whole life, and quite loudly those last few ... Read more in Amazon's Greg Laswell Store

3.0 out of 5 stars New Take on Old Songs February 18, 2014
By tesg
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Laswell tweeted up a storm promoting his "new record" coming soon over the past few months. Didn't mention that it wasn't new material.

In fact, it's a remake of several songs in his existing catalog in largely slow, haunting, spacey piano versions. They're beautiful takes on these songs, but they aren't replacements for the original versions. There's a little synth and some guitar in a couple of tracks, but not much.

Not sure where the title comes from, but the songs would probably fit in the loneliness of space.

I hadn't heard of Laswell before when I was walking through Barnes N Nobel and heard this come on. Instant fan. So many songs on this CD are just beautiful. Love it.
