ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a special pressing of the "third floor sessions." Like the first 500 copies, this batch is also hand made. This 15 song disc is packaged in an origami portrait of the artist. Idie rock from start to finish this collection of songs is much more crisper and clearer then one would expect from the bed room folk genre.

Fairfield CT Weekly review by Brita Belli
Eugene’s Third Floor Sessions is impossible to listen to without imagining him sitting cross-legged between instruments, a computer, and a rickety piano looking over a quiet neighborhood while he strums. The 15 track album is bracingly honest and absolutely raw. And whether the songs work, or don’t quite work, the stick to a listener. The first song, “ordinary,” one of only two mandolin songs, stand out as a song that is immediately transferable – to radio, to TV, or whatever pop cultural pocket needs a catchy soundtrack. Plucking the happy chords he sings, “These days are all so ordinary / we like to toss snow at moving things / and spin the bottle and learn kissing / guess I’m in trouble, I wasn’t listening.” And while the sound is decidedly more straightforward and upbeat then the other tracks, it lets listeners know the general theme of Eugene’s music.
On “stay with me,” a song whose strumming is sparse and deliberate, the chorus drops into dreaminess from the melodic way he draws out “staaaaay with me,” including harmonies, to the inclusion of hand claps and what sounds to be a child reading at a school presentation. He may play with certain looseness, but Eugene is hyper-conscious of pauses, which is one of the elements that give his simple songs presence.
There seems to be a melancholy hidden in the heavy-handed playing, or in the way his voice is breaking up, or in the lonesomeness of the plain instruments, like the opening harmonica on “like Christy road.” Actually the song starts with a lot of scratching noises, then the harmonica, the methodic strumming and Eugene’s voice singing about a surprise birthday party with all the miserable, dark enthusiasm of Tom Waits or Even Dando at the end of a rough night.
