The latest from Sam Burton, who you might remember as one of the musicians who came out of the Spy Hop label a few years back. He's back and working with Chthonic Records to release this five-track EP titled Herd Behavior. The EP has been described by the label as “gut-wrecnhing beautiful songs,' which is a pretty fitting title as these are about as bare-boned and honest as you can get. Most of them are simply Burton with a guitar, perhaps with a little bass and harmonic to dress it up on occasion. A really nice departure from his prior works, and a fitting kind of album for the season. It may just be an EP, but this is a must-have for the year.
