Acoustic Sensations from @RyanStar: “Bullet” and “Here Comes Your Man”

RYAN STAR, “Bullet” and “Here Comes Your Man” (acoustic)

Ryan Star continues to promote his album independently released earlier this year called A N G E L S + A N I M A L S, which contains the singles “Stay Awhile” and “Impossible”.  Like with his previously released EP America, one of Ryan’s great strengths is to take away the band and bring a song into acoustic form.  I’ve seen his concert in full blown electric R&R and acoustic.  So you’ll see in the video for “Bullet” (above) that the song trades intensities from the album version to a bare bones honest acoustic guitar version recorded in a park.  Not one to hide his many influences, Ryan also strips away the post-new wave trappings of The Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man” (below) to a more lyrical piano rendition that is capped by a classic Ryan Star powerful vocal moment around the 1:45 mark.  Ryan continues to sell out shows in New York City, such as on June 20th at Rockwood Music Hall, but announced a second one at the same venue on July 10.  Then he’s hosting and playing acoustic at the “Rockin’ To Save Babies’ Lives” benefit concert on July 23 at the Hammerstein Ballroom alongside A Great Big World, Mary Lambert, and DJ Cassidy (tickets start at $100).  Do yourself a huge favour in the meantime and buy A N G E L S + A N I M A L S on iTunes.
