He says it was the result of a year of songwriting as a means of dealing with his various personal struggles and successes, and he says one of the greatest lessons he’s learned is that sometimes you’ve got to “Let It Go.” How appropriate!
The very first track on this album, “Hours,” is full of so many great parts. The hook is so catchy in a sort of southern Texas alternative country kind of way. It hits hard right from the beginning, and the recording quality is great. The vocals are beautifully grainy and just on top of the mix enough to stand out and still feel natural.
The persistent tambourine gives it a very Texas feel, and the refrains of chanting seem hauntingly mindless. It’s very effective. These lyrics are incredible. It isn’t often that I hear a song and immediately fall in love with it, but this song is sticking with me hard. It’s definitely my favorite on the album.
If you’re in the area, try to make it to a Tyler Heath show. If you aren’t, then just head over to his Facebook or Bandcamp and check out thse great tunes! He’s got plenty of other work, but I think "Let It Go" is a great first introduction.
