The Cost of Living

In 2007, I bought Goth-accordionist-singer-songwriter Jason Webley’s CD “The Cost of Living”. I’m a big fan of Mr. Webley’s music, ever since he performed on my stage at a ren-goth convention. I bought two of his CDs at the show, which I don’t do very often. (When I’m in audio-monkey mode, musicians belong behind the microphone, not in my wallet.)

Viaje and Against the Night were wonderful, growling, intimate albums, filled with energy and anger.

I’m enjoying The Cost of Living a lot more than I did when I first got it. In 2007, I thought it was decent but overproduced. The album’s got a lot more energy than it had when my ears were younger. I’m not sure what changed, except that I’ve been listening to more klezmer and prog-jazz.
