Rae Spoon, in collaboration with Lorrie Matheson, creates a beautiful pop-indie-rock fusion on his album Love is A Hunter. The music is inspired and the lyrics like poetry written on drifting melodies. Death by Electro starts the album off strong with solid guitar chords, while Matheson’s voice flows like silk through your fingers. Love Is A Hunter is raw with passion while You Like All The Parties speaks clearly to social pressure. Bethelightbethelightbethelight finishes the album with the graceful touch of an acoustic track. The album is well crafted and Spoon’s well-rounded musical talent is evident. There’s an ideal balance between the instrumentals and vocals thanks to Spoon’s ability to fill out every one of his songs. The album covers so much musical ground it will reach out to lovers of countless genres.
