Beforetime EP (Best New Music)

Beforetime EP by Tim Fitz   (October 21, 2011) *

Tim Fitz’ latest October release, Beforetime, is a complex work of interweaving guitar, piano and percussion lines that (although unrecognizable at first) unwind to reveal a beautifully patterned EP.  What’s more amazing, is that the kid’s doing this all on his own.  No band, just loop pedal.  Not afraid to use some traditionally pop melodies and dynamics, Beforetime bridges the canyon between intricate indie and pop in the same way Bird of Stevens do.  The album is a ride, the whole way through providing solid ups and even more solid ups, track after track.  And unlike so many today, Fitz isn’t afraid to take a solo.
