[MUSIC] The Liquorsmiths - "This Book Belongs To"

Summer heightens the senses, adding extra emphasis to why the 
sun makes you feel so alive. And that same feeling is exactly the 
core found in This Book Belongs To, the debut EP courtesy of The
Liquorsmiths. The folk rock trio hailing from San Diego, California
are musicians who perform with a hefty amount of magnetic appeal,
evidenced by their devout following on the West Coast. The trio(Drew
Thams, Ryan Fischer, Clayton Payne) possess a sound that is a rich
mix of folk and Americana with an alternative rock undertone that
pops throughout this EP and reflects their diverse backgrounds that
stretch from coast to coast. 

This Book Belongs To starts with the sun-kissed twang found in “Coy
With Me”. The song is lilting and breezy, and gives you a great first
impression of the band’s prowess. Thams as a vocalist exudes a sage
presence, with tonal inflections that give you the genteel quality like
Neil Young. This is highly evident on “Iris’ Song”, a soft ballad that 
frames the conversation of a couple reaffirming their commitment 
to each other - his voice coupled with Fishcher’s guitar which acts 
like a supporting brush to the canvas of the scene makes this extra
lush. And Payne’s steady and assured percussion throughout, with
an especially near-jazz tempo on “Devil I Do” ties the band’s sound
all together. The Liquorsmiths have their finger on the pulse of the
seasons with this new EP. This Book Belongs To will be released through
the band’s website on August 25th.
