Bow Thayer – The Zen of Snug (Self-released) [LOCAL]

The latest record from veteran VT musician Bow Thayer is a smooth batch of alt-folk numbers blending a variety of styles. Straight-ahead funky drumbeats lay a foundation for all flavors of twang, with a few oddball electronic flourishes thrown in for good measure. Thayer’s lyrics reflect the confusion, pain and isolation of the last few years, but with an overall hopeful and uplifting look toward the future.
