In his latest musical offering, September, Dave Scott delivers an eleven-track album that exudes a warm and inviting aura, primarily revolving around a rock-based sonic landscape. Upon embarking on this musical journey, "Down with a Smile," the album's opening track, immediately captivates the listener.
Its sonic resonance bears a distinct resemblance to the spirit of U2, intertwining nostalgia with an unwavering forward momentum. Continuing our exploration, "Nashville," stands out with its expansive percussion and heartfelt lyrical content. "Waiting" takes a minimalist and subdued approach, a commendable choice that complements the album's overall texture.
As the album unfolds, we encounter a plethora of standout tracks, such as "Starving," "Long Gone" and "Throw My Flesh Away." These compositions represent the zenith of Dave Scott's artistic expression within this musical journey.
While September is an undeniably solid offering, one minor critique arises in the realm of recording quality. The lo-fi aesthetic, though effective in most instances, might have benefited from a touch more fidelity. Nevertheless, it is clear that Dave Scott's prowess as a songwriter shines brightly throughout the album, rendering September a compelling and cohesive work of art from start to finish.
