||Boy Gone Wrong CD (2003) |
Peter Galub songs Peter Galub's debut is a low-key singer/songwriter album, though more indie pop in orientation than the work of more mainstream-directed efforts lumped under the singer/songwriter category. At times he sounds a little weary and down, though not quite grim, eking out his words against slow tempos, as if he's carrying a burden of sorts. His lyrics are poetic but vague, radiating, as so many performers of this type do, the aura of a guy taking stock, looking for permanence after much drifting, eager for romance yet wary and guarded. While this does have more ambition and thoughtfulness than the typical record of this style, the series of songs with (for the most part) languid beats and yearning, slightly pained vocals does drag after a while, occasionally verging on the lugubrious. Fans of Alex Chilton and some of the more downbeat work of Billy Bragg and Gordon Gano will recognize some of the same factors at play, though this isn't as distinctive. ~ Jimmy James

||I've Forgotten Everything CDs (2006) |
Peter Galub CD discography from STEREOPHILE Magazine: "Lee Feldman's I've Forgotten Everything is unlike anything else in contemporary pop. The songs are alternately sad, whimsical, harrowing, and very funny (although the album's best laugh may be the visual joke on the disc itself). A third of the tunes are waltzes, and all of the melodies are catchy and challenging in more or less equal measure. Above all, the writing voice behind it all is kind, humane, and clever without being too clever: There's nothing arch about Feldman's music.
"Every one of these songs is like a ...
