“Start At The Beginning” by Among Savages, from The Wanderings Of An Illustrative Mind.
The debut album from Peter Barbee, opens with “Start at the Beginning,” where a haunting cello ushers in a string section as Barbee’s androgynous voice coos through waves of reverb over electric guitar. Raised in the foothills of Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, Barbee relocated to Nashville at 17 and embedded himself in its music scene. Wanderings of an Illustrative Mind features cinematic pop underpinned by rich, symphonic layers. Good stuff.
