017 - John Roberts (Glass Eights)

With this album, less is more. As opposed to cheapening components through their overuse, Roberts' use of restraint maintains their value. He recognizes the potential in holding back, in building up - as well as subverting - expectation. As a result, his music appears smart, well-dressed and sophisticated. I particularly like the use of the piano, which can be heard in Pruned.
