EP of the Day: Tim Halperin-You Are The Moon
It seems like I've been coming upon quite a bit of very good piano pop lately. Fresh on the heels of the fine Ian Axel EP from late last year, here comes Fort Worth's Tim Halperin with his debut EP, You Are The Moon.
Ben Folds is the obvious point of comparison here, and Halperin resembles Folds (as well as Justin Levinson) vocally. The title track would have fit nicely onto Whatever and Ever Amen with its scruffy amiability, while "What I Want" has a 70s vibe and "Nice to Be Free" adds some guitar virtuosity to the mix. The Coldplay-inspired "We Can Make It" caps off the disc. If you're a fan of the piano pop subgenre, Tim Halperin is definitely worth your acquaintance.
