Jaye Bartell is originally from Massachusetts, but he moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2013 which is where he recorded his latest record “Light Enough.” This album is primarily driven by an acoustic guitar, but some tracks feature subtle background instrumentation. Each song is very personal, and tells a story in a very Mark Kozelek fashion, only the songs actually rhyme. Although this record at times may seem kind of sad, that doesn’t take away from how fantastic of a record it truly is.
