as the title says it is about closeness to bedroom and soul music.
Indeed, the San Francisco, California, US-based artist Wes Leslie
does not lie at all though there is a gap to interpret the term
“bedroom” in different ways. Is it his approach to record music
in a bedroom or is it his intention to seduce girls. His
soundscape is clear, all
parts are segmented and
having no specific lo-fi/DIY approach which can be related to. Wes
is full of mellow touch and gentle murmurs though lyrically it is a
painful yearning for broken
relations, ex-girls, and
passed memories created
So if you have had the similar experience (and
of course, you do as a contemporary person, isn`t?) then
is painful or at least
bittersweet for you as well. At Oh My Golly Gosh especially arouses me due to Leslie is singing with Mae Powell in unison. That`s very sexy. The most important – Wes Leslie is very convincing in all aspects
of his music.
backed up with sporadic horn sections and orchestrated flavour and
hazy electronics adding an
appealing Americana touch to the soulful blend. Last
but not least – it is an outing for a contemporary listener – it
embraces 18 minutes during the course of a handful of ditties. Fairly accomplished.
