Album Notes
Kryszak, creator and frontman of Buffalo, NY-based alt-rock outfit REV, is one such musician. With four full-length REV albums and several classical music and silent film score recordings distributed from his one-man operation, Kryszak continues to produce and release fiercely independent music that goes largely unheard.

His first alt-rock solo album, Lullabies for People Who Don't Need Sleep, is an intricately woven but wildly stitched pattern of acoustic composition, adorned with a light arrangement of sparse background collage that supports the subtlest, and often sweetest, of melodies. The lingering melody rises above the low hum and rattle of an industrial soundscape in the somber "Shadow of a Coal Plant." Kryszak's gentle acoustic plucking and a swirling, decidedly '70s-style church organ paint a lovingly polluted blue grey sky over a dominating watchful coal plant. It is the outstanding track on this album.
Elsewhere, things get a bit more cheery. "The Rock I Came From" is a funky acoustic jam that explores the genre of rock music, or existence itself, as a rapidly disappearing entity where flowers still grow. "Trying to Remember" is a warm slice of dreamy psych music with the slightest detection of an old Neil Diamond guitar chord at its base.

Lullabies for People Who Don't Need Sleep is a little rough around the edges...It is his choice for the organic sound of the recording, a precious expression of a genuine artist.
