Sebastian O - In Your Room

.
Listening to Sebastian O, the first thought that comes to mind is, 'Hey, is this new Conor Oberst music?' O's singing is so Oberst-like, it's truly uncanny. And like Oberst, Sebastian O sings with a gentle, vulnerable manner. However, where Oberst leans toward Americana, country and rock sounds, Sebastian creates quiet, acoustic folk.

One titled "Cheers" is highlighted by an enjoyably fluid bass line, while "Colors" bounces to a happy acoustic guitar folk rhythm. Songs like "Floating" can be a little trying on the listener. It's so raw and vulnerable, you may feel like you are eves dropping on a personal confession. Maybe this is the intention. If so, Sebastian O has far more guts than most of us.

In Your Room is an appropriate title, in that you may feel like Sebastian is right there in the room with you singing these songs. The Beach Boys' "In My Room" was already taken, but that title would have fit even better. No matter the name, this is highly personal stuff.
