You owe it to yourself to buy @RiverTiber’s alt.soul EP When The Time Is Right

RIVER TIBER, When The Time Is Right (EP)

As I’ve already reported most enthusiastically in my posts about lead off songs (and my favourites) “No Talk” and “Let You Go”, you owe it to yourself to buy River Tiber’s 5 song EP When The Time Is Right.  It’s a slickly done, smooth-sounding EP full of so much creativity that makes you constantly check yourself because you don’t know where the next song is headed.  Multi-instrumentalist Tommy Paxton-Beesley has shifted directions from progressive rock-influenced pop/rock of earlier releases to what is essentially alt.soul full of hip hop blessings.  The other songs within are the bass-laden “Waves”, “Lost”, and the thoughtful title song.  River Tiber’s new sound has also brought Tommy’s excellent voice front and centre although he continues to use it often as an instrument in some of the songs too.  When The Time Is Right is another gem from my city (Toronto) and one of the best records you will hear in 2015.  Listen above and buy it on iTunes.
