CHARLES ATLAS,"PLAY THE SPACES"
The secondfull-length-ish album from Charles Atlas was recorded in San Franciscoover the course of five months but is much more stripped down than lastyear's "Two More Hours."
Perhaps because it's as such since Play theSpaces is void of the bells and whistles of remixes and post-productionindie hero guests. Regardless, it's a great disc of simple and quietguitar melodies. At 34 minutes, I am however longing for some more.Perhaps it would have been more complete (for me at least) to have someof the neat primitive electronics and almost mis-directioned varietyfrom last year's album.
