Mike Llerena - Absence & The Heart

.
The songs on Mike Llerena's Absence & The Heart can be quite variable from track to track. "On the Way, Back Home" and "End of the Line" speed along with punkish momentum, while "Rosanna" (No, not the Toto song of the same name) is a much slower, emotional song of romantic longing. Then "Dear Lonely" is backed by nothing more than acoustic guitar. Its chorus features Llerena's voice multitracked.

With "Lady Rock & Roll," Llerna anthropomorphizes rock & roll. And much like a woman that once inspired him to believe he could change the world, this genre has somehow let him down. The good news, though, is Llerena is willing to give her a second chance. That old flame still burns.

Just as certain men seemingly love all women, Llerena loves most varieties of rock & roll. He's the guy that gets as excited about a Tom Petty classic rock concert, as he is about a local punk band's set, one imagines. If it's loud and enthusiastic, he's there.
