Sam Owens’ fourth album, How To Build A Clock, is making some serious rounds after his first few albums were only heard by a select few. Which is a shame, really, as Owens knows how to craft head-boppers. Nowhere is that more evident than on the title track off the album, which he’s made available for free download. Its rhythm gets you from the start with Owens’ polished tone and spright piano backing.
*If you’re a regular reader I should forewarn you so you’re not surprised: I will only be posting sporadically over the next couple weeks (meaning no full album reviews from me), as I’ll be traveling on business and then off to a friend’s wedding. Jamie will hold down the fort along with our superb contributors, Abby, Tom and Jesse. I look forward to picking things back up upon my return to normalcy, but you should get the occasional mp3 and artist profile regardless. Thanks in advance for your understanding!*
