Jim Foster – A Sailor’s Advice

(Qwest) Record seven songs with no headphones into your iPhone, run them through a Mac computer, add some stereo echo and the result is Jim Foster’s A Sailor’s Advice, as he notes, kinda like Sun Records gone digital. This amazingly efficient and cost effective recording method has produced an excellent set of acoustic guitar solos and plaintive folky lyrics, all packing a distinctive nautical spirit. The sheer simplicity of tracks like “Don’t Let Em Bring You Down” and “It Does Take A Little While” are to be applauded, suggesting that the former frontman for Fosterchild is an excellent live performer.
