11 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Charlatans At the Garden Gate is a memorable debut full-length release by singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Tristen Gasapadarak. At first listen, her lovely, playful voice and bouncy melodies command the attention, especially on catchy standouts “Eager for Your Love,” “Matchstick Murder,” “Doomsday,” and “Baby Drugs.” However, the true depth of the album is revealed in a variety of details. Sweet harmonies, clever hooks, and colorful instrumentation and textures all add to the overall warm and pleasing sound of the album. Keyboards, synths, strings, and just the right amount of echo turn tracks like “Avalanche” and “Battle of the Gods” into grand compositions without losing any of their pop appeal. Featuring consistently sharp songwriting and no filler among the 11 tracks, Charlatans At the Garden Gate is a thoroughly charming folk-pop gem.
