N.Y.C. artist Jason Shand’s songs about love’s frustrations have cool chord changes and plain, direct lyrics. The sad, sad “Seeing You” conjures a gentle melancholy that builds from a solitary hurt to a full-blown heartache. The song is characterized by conversational, almost stream-of-consciousness lyrics that mar the arrangement. A tale of unrequited love, “To Be In Love With You” is his best tune, with a catchy chorus that’s driven home again and again. Finally, the atmospheric, falsetto-fueled “The Petty Narcissist” is another tale of frustrated passion that showcases Shand’s pop-friendly voice, which is quite appealing, though it does sometimes flirt with flatness. We urge Shand to align with a lovelorn wordsmith.
