An advance listen of Tucson gave me chills. It’s bright and extremely mature for a first solo outing . . . the songs on Tucson could all stand alone as strong singles. Kantor’s voice soars.
Tucson is the sort of intelligent pop that we need more of . . . It’s a shadowy, warm record that feels like a place we’ve all been before, and having that feeling is peaceful. In this way, Tucson achieves something real and beautiful.
[The single ‘Evenings Out’] is awesomely guitar-driven, nicely huge and features a damn fine little melody and a super cool instrumental hook. Unless the world is totally cockeyed (and it is, frequently), this stuff should be pretty damn big.
