Andrew Cedermark: Home Life
Following his 2010 effort, Moon Deluxe, the rock-and-roll musician Andrew Cedermark spent 2012 putting new songs to tape in an honest-to-goodness rock-and-roll recording studio. Ten of these songs make up his new album, Home Life, which is set in New York, New Jersey, and Virginia, and which, loosely, is about growing up only to find that you didn't have to, and the subsequent discovery that the process is irreversible. Other irreversible processes discussed in the album include falling in love; losing friends while not making friends; and realizing that one is mired in a place where one does not belong. Like country and rap music, neither of which Home Life resembles, the album's lyrical content is designed to reflect the likely concerns of its listeners.
