Brooklyn based photographer and musician Nathan Bajar comes through with a brand new album titled Playroom. Known for his incredible photography portraits of super talented artists such as Lakeith Stanfield, Anna Wise, Wiki, Sampha among many others, Nathan has delved into music, creating a fuzzy, guitar-heavy lo-fi album that sounds moody and groovy at the same time.
The smooth and soft fuzzy guitar-driven melody of the first track “Playroom (Lover’s Paradise)” is beautiful and so soft, with synths and subtle drumming complimenting the delicate and beautiful vocals. The fuzziness and eclecticism in his music kicks in on the second track “Purple Hearts,” with off-kilter singing and melodies that add soul and depth to his music. The synths and keys at the start of “Heck” are beautiful and are just complemented by Nathan’s singing and rapping throughout. “Mia’s Song,” the longest on this album is a stunning track that highlights his ability to create stunning compositions with his guitar. It also includes a gorgeous string section and absolutely great vocals that are subdued by the powerful and soothing instrumental. “The Table” and “Speedy Racer” end this album with beautiful, soft instrumentals and beautiful guitar-driven melodies. The lo-fi energy is wonderful and I hope Nathan continues to produce soulful, heartfelt tracks like these because they’re all absolutely brilliant.
