Penguin Prison - Penguin Prison
There are times when you can just sit back and trust an artist. It's these times when you don't mind turning all control over to them and letting them do what they do best. I wish these moments came more often but when they do happen, you cherish them because they are all the more special. As corny as those two sentences are, when talking about the debut album from Penguin Prison, every word is true. He knows what he's doing and there aren't many people that can work their way around a synthesizer like he can. Chris Glover grew up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and had some pretty diverse musical influences ranging from Johnny Cash to Aaron Neville. Being in New York City, he was influenced by the city and the culture and everyone around him.
