Everyone plays the game. In one way or another, we’re all victim to the structures of our time and culture. Gabriel Garzón-Montano is here to remind us that, “You don’t have to lose the game.” On “The Game,” his most recent release from the forthcoming LP Jardín, Garzón-Montano offers a hopeful perspective on the winding paths through the trials of everyday life. With his unique brand of minimal soul and the tag line, “Have a heart like a tangerine,” Garzón-Montano offers a strong follow-up to “Sour Mango” that will pique the interest of any fan of original soul music.
Jardin is due for release on January 27th via Stones Throw.
