Review: Eddy Dyer – …Into Doves of Grey [2008]

amazon-eddy-dyerA subdued and melancholic aura envelopes the 14-tracks contained on Eddy Dyer’s latest offering …INTO DOVES OF GREY. Consisting of mainly acoustic guitar and voice with some mandolin peeking through at times, this 14-track endeavor showcases traces of psychedelica on “Nthru Nbeon,” issues with spirituality on cuts like the not so subtle “Jesus Christ,” the protest-esque “Snakes out of Boston” and “Out at Night” and a glimpse at Dyer’s personal relationships on “Song for Jamie” and the richly strummed “Jennifer.” Meshing the stark nuances of Jack Johnson with a rebellious streak poised at full strength, Eddy Dyer’s unique subject matter and stark arrangements yield an unexpectedly hearty listening experience.
