A lot of modern artists try to operating under grandiose guises and huge concepts that never really pay off. In the case of promising talent Bryan Deister, it would seem that he’s more in control of the sprawling sonic atmospheres he creates as opposed to the other way around.
While keeping up his Writing and Composition Scholarship at the Berklee College of Music, Deister crafted an ambitious new full length, Spines of the Heart. The dark, brooding album comes in the continued veins of Thom Yorke’s solo works marking Deister as an artist and composer to watch going forward.
The mood on Spines of the Heart is established from the outset in “All That I Have.” On the lead track, Deister builds tension lines with rumbling bass undulations, thundering drums and his own ethereal vocal take.
