The second track on Oz Davidson's EP "Debt" (entitled: "Co-Signer") opens up with a slew of excuses for his poor Co-Signer.... singing plainly: "co-signer, did I ruin your name? I got homesick, I got allergic...". As the track progresses we are treated to some quirky vocal layering and overall really clever songwriting.
The track "It's Alright It's Okay (2008 demo)" we here a rougher take on Davidson's style, but the heavily effected grungy recording sound still manages to be somewhat intimate through his honesty filter. A real sincerity can be heard in this particular track- sounding somewhat similar to the really early recordings of Devendra Banhart.
"Debt" is a great album in that it succeeds in taking what may be considered menial little life intricacies, putting them to song, and thereby transitioning them into grand emotional narratives. Davidson is also good at working with big feelings and small feelings, and mixing them in the same pot. Also the last 25 second track on the EP is kind of the best ending I've ever heard on an album.
"Debt" by Oz Davidson is available via his Bandcamp page.
