Dean Friedman’s ‘American Lullaby’
On “Halfway Normal World” Friedman yearns along with the rest of us to get back to some semblance of what the world once was. The relaxed tone allows the listener to fully absorb and relate to the meaningful lyrics.
There is more of a funk groove to “The Russians Are Coming” as the comedic flair is shown. Some sweet accents and experimental Jazz sounds build up a truly entertaining track, with a purpose. The comedy continues with the alt-campaign song “Ridin’ With Biden.” Truth bombs are dropped as a country twanf guitar line melds with an electro drum beat.
The true purpose of Dean Friedman comes through on “I Wish You Joy.” The fun he provides is to try and make the world a better place. This track covers a variety of styles piled all into one with the true hope of Joy for the listener.
