In the folds of Aaron M Olson’s leisurely “Wealth,” a midnight stroll becomes a spell cast to keep sweet memories held close. Olson’s new album, Songs Album, is a languid pop slow burner, simmering in a timeless stew of influences from Jack Nitzsche to Jim O’Rourke. Lush arrangements give way to neon sunsets as “Wealth” bobs on the ocean’s surface, Olson singing wistfully before the waves dance toward the dawn. Songs Album is an unexpected joy.
Songs Album is out on cassette via Moone Records on November 9.
