Bridgetown #53

Jon Barba
If We Say It In Unison...

The most beloved and captivating songwriter/performer in the Los Angeles DIY underground returns for his fifth contribution to the Bridgetown catalog with his most developed and mature album yet. After suddenly relocating 400 miles away to Oakland, the artist formerly known as Nicole Kidman's realigns the painful and emotional intimacy of his previous project under the dog-eat-dog lens of the East Bay. On Barba's debut under his own name, his signature style of frantic, emotional keyboard anthems shares the stage with rocking pop punk, bridged by softer instrumental piano pieces and the sensibilities of old school new age / ocean sound albums, courtesy of field recordings taken by longtime collaborator Kevin Greenspon on a tour together in 2009 and seamlessly sequenced into the context of this mini-album.
