Singer-songwriter Jeremy Messersmith released his new album The Reluctant Graveyard earlier this month. Like his previous outings, but even better, the chamber-power-popster knows how to write a vintage sing-along. As before, Messersmith digs in to the concept album concept; this time, a song cycle about death and dying. Ah, but it’s cheery as all heck. Fans of Aimee Mann, The Hollies and Jellyfish outta eat this up.
