8 Songs by Alistair Christl offers a more subdued variant to his usual catalog. Bare bones, lonely and often moody and melancholic, “8 Songs” draws inspiration from such greats as Orbison and Sinatra to bring a crafted and dynamic exploration to his repertoire. Marked by sparse instrumentation, slow tempos and meditative lyrics and vocal style, it’s impressing old fans and gaining new ones. Click here to listen/buy.
