Fraser A Gorman Easy DazyFraser A. Gorman has a lovely way with words: “Your words flow like golden peaches drippin’ from a can,” he sings on his second album, a cruisy collection of songs that instantly sound like old friends.

He’s self-deprecating, name-checking Tim Buckley’s 1972 classic in The World Sure Looks Dark (Through These Sunglasses): “Now I’m listening to Greetings From LA, as if there’s anything more that I could say.” Don’t believe it – Gorman has got plenty to offer. “I feel the dark is about to pass over,” he declares in album opener, My Own Sunshine. Not all of the record is sunny, but every track is warm and inviting. Easy Dazy is a delight.

Easy Dazy is out July 13 via Caroline.
