If you’ve been jonesing for a wickedly poetic, topically charged, deeply felt, and dynamically played singer-songwriter album, Seattle’s own talented and troubled troubadour Aaron Semer is releasing Cape Disappointment, and it will massage your neck, curl your toes, and enrich your life. This is a Rock album, even with its fervent acoustic heart. Combining the rustic lyricism of Neil Young’s Harvest with the grace and grit of Terry Allen; the folk-punk of the saltiest Warren Zevon anthem with the haunted historicity of a Randy Newman, or the weathered wisdom of Lucinda Williams. Semer’s second full-length is a sweet, strummed cure to our National Anhedonia, with plenty of taste and bite.
