Pop is such a fragile genre. It’s been put through a wealth of ups and downs, meant to test its meddle and break its back.
Somehow it survives, pushing on despite the slings and arrows of bubblegum and boy bands. You can thank Chris Weisman for keeping the eternal flame lit. After last year’s lovely Fresh Sip cassette, Weisman returns to Autumn Records for the double disc Transparency. Hinting at the biggest loves of pop’s past, Weisman returns grace and dignity to the ever-battered genre.
