Marc Brierly EP


Summer days turn into summer evenings and, as this summer sits nigh, Marc Brierly’s self-titled EP has been tickling me just the right way. Released in 1966, the EP bristles with deftly plucked acoustic guitar in a way that early Jansch and Donovan would certainly appreciate. There’s that British-isles cloudy day melancholy streaked all over this work, and what a finer time to soak up the sound than on these benign, slate-skied days that Los Angeles likes to call “June Gloom.” Brierly went on to record a few more records with an increasing level of instrumentation and psychedelia, but for me, this EP stands the test of time as a forthright, honest collection of songs that speak for themselves.
