Lustre from the Distance
Shane Parton delivers his second album titled Lustre from the Distance. It is an introspective work that travels through the heart, reflecting the way it loves, the way it feels when love dissolves, and pondering how things might have been different if only things were different. Kicking off this collection is the infectious blues-dusted groove 'Unspoken' which captures the attention from the very start and holds on long after the song has ended. As it continues, Lustre soars through lush, guitar driven, sounds and drifts inward touching melodic, delicate, folk inspired songs before turning back out to land on the same positive note from which it started. This pop/rock infused album occasionally finds the angry, defiant voice that Shane established with his debut -Cusp- but predominantly features a mature, smooth sound that is ripe for the taking. These 12 tracks were written and recorded from 2003-2007 at Studio 132 in San Francisco. Joyful, sorrowful, honest, and human, Lustre from the Distance is an album we can all identify with and serves as a reminder of just how powerful music can be.
