Jason Collett, Motor Motel Love Songs

Collett is best known for his collaborations with Juno Award-winning alternative group Broken Social Scene. However, Collett’s solo work is a 180 degree sonic turn from the hard rock edge of Broken Social Scene. Motor Motel Love Songs is full of finely crafted, laid back acoustic songs. The best tracks include the bouncy “Tiny Ocean of Tears,” the depressing “Stormy Women Salty Girl,” and the Hawksley Workman-produced “It Won’t Be Long.” “Long” is by far the most heart-wrenching track on the album because of it’s minimal instrumental approach. It wisely focuses on the frail-sounding qualities of Collett’s voice. (EMI) Rating: 4 Out Of 5 Stars
