As one of the principal songwriters in the New Hampshire band MMOSS, guitarist Doug Tuttle was integral in honing that band’s signature sound of West Coast bummer harmonies wrapped taut around a sinewy & dreamy collision of hazy psychedelia & motorik krautrock. Upon the band’s recent dissolution in the spring of 2013, the east coast native Tuttle pitched camp in Somerville, Mass & began writing his way through not only the band’s demise but also the end of a long-time relationship.The fruits of his labor are clearly evident in his debut solo album. Tuttle deftly forges a sound that all his, weaving nebulous jams into masterfully crafted pop gems. There is also heavy introspection here leading one to consider other artists who were terrific as the member of a band but that really excelled when they began releasing material under their own name.
