Portland seven-piece folk outfit, AgesandAges,
releases an upbeat, positive debut that clandestinely lifts your spirits. Damn
them. With their memorable harmonies and melodies Alright You Restless proves charmingly simple yet intricate. Though
Tim Perry is the band’s lead vocalist, all members lend their voices and AgesandAges
manages to beautifully balance everyone’s instruments (strings, drums and the
occasional piano or accordion) to orchestrate heartfelt music that channels Americana.

 

“No Nostalgia,”
“Alright, You Restless,” and “So So Freely” are all quality tracks where the
music and Perry’s vocal stylings permeate your mind after several listens. Yet
the songs that prove the most outstanding are those where the other members of
AgesandAges join Perry. The two closing tracks, “When I Was Idle” and
“Souvenir,” best illustrate this element and are the most pulsating numbers. Alright You Restless is an organic, emotive
album that will remind music aficionados that good music thrives.
