Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-06-05Hayden Desser wrote and recorded this, his fifth full-length album at his home studio in Ontario, Canada. This is typical singer/songwriter fare with Hayden singing mostly sad lyrics over nice instrumentation. He produced this disc as well, and I think he did a nice job with the mix. He seems to be promoting himself as an indie musician; having opened for such acts as Feist and The National. I think the title track is one of the highlights of this album. Track #4, "Worthy of Your Esteem", features lush string arrangements. Track #6, "Did I Wake Up Beside You", is almost a country-rock piece and certainly sounds influenced by Neil Young.
