Jon Garcia - The Lake

Body: Jon Garcia's sophomore album, "The Lake," is both complex and mellow, and these are positive attributes. His folky sound is elevated to a level of ethereality by orchestral accompaniment that makes it all sound like fantastic landscapes pulsing and warping as each new emotion is voiced. The suspense is built and broken through the juxtaposition of pop hooks against the instrumental washes and solos, without ever overpowering Garcia's voice and lyrics. His themes of love and loss are best articulated in mundane scenarios, where our greatest hopes and fears are enacted and inevitably exaggerated. I recommend his CD for cruising, however you choose to move. (Megan Polley)
