Winston Limited

Having recorded and released Passengers with a backing band in 2004, Winston has now recorded a six-song solo EP created exclusively with the use of vintage analogue gear. The result is a lovely little package of songs that are introspective, as Winston sings about feeling run down and wasting away. Signed to Aquarius, Winston is on a label that includes the likes of the talented Jeremy Fisher and the oh-so-great Corey Heart. That said, Limited is an EP filled with melodic songs that fall in and out of happiness, ultimately making for a simplistic pop-meets-folk record. With songs like "Denim” and "Saying the Same Thing,” Winston has struck a great chord, making a half-hour long EP that would be great to listen to when winding down after a day of hard work, or after having called in sick.
