Meridian is decisively straight-forward. Erickson's well organized and often melancholic lyrics are biographical and flirtatious -cautiously confessional. He writes from a nostalgic, tongue-in-cheek vantage point about the weight of love and occupations with foreign places. Pavek holds an instrumental aptitude and proficiency in musical composition that shapes and illuminates the simple, sentimental structure of each song. Lyrically the album is a nod towards Dylan, musically it’s a touch of Philip Glass, and emotionally it’s a sixteen hour car-drive with Chris Isaak and Ryan Adams. This is an album you can lean against, drink alone to -a soundtrack for the relentless romantic in all of us.
