"Well, it's about TIME!!"
I can imagine the many Paul Mac Innes fans and friends saying in concert at the recent release of his first EP. I don't know if that's a blessing or something a little less than one, 'tho. How ridiculous is it that someone with such talent and zest for life that exposes itself in his soulfilled performances, has not been seriously recorded (except through his own efforts) in a debut release before now is intriguing and part of the mystique that is Paul Mac Innes. With his writing partner, Tboi (Björn Almgren), these 'brothers of inventions' have finally given their adoring fans their due. And, it is indeed about TIME?! This tune stands alone as the reason this reviewer knows that Paul's moment of ascension is closer than we might think. His vocal prowess is so evidently unique and distinctive that with only one listen, you'll become a convert and worship all things 'Mac Innes' from then on. Don't Know Me (Buggin') is a great tune to allow you to hear his playfulness vocally and lyrically. The song warns you about rolling up on someone with an agenda, who's determined to keep things simple and straightforward. Tboi's arrangements give Paul plenty of room to discover new interpretations of his obviously well-rehearsed songs. Just hearing these tunes, again and again, you always feel like you're listening for the first time, which is the genius of the arrangements which are old-school without being 'dated'. Their fresh appeal extends to all the cuts on this EP, but I warn you, five songs will never be enough from this gifted Swede and you'll soon be scouring the CD stores for those other stand out vocals he's recorded on a few other notable artists releases. Just visit him at his official site, www.paulmacinnes.com or his MySpace entity for more details about his discography. The EP is located on iTUNES. Paul is also part of the compilation SOUND MIND and MUSIC REVIEW with his stellar tune, Even Though, located at www.WayfaringStrangers.net
