Careful

Eric Lindley’s small-scale music sounds equally invested in what draws you in and what throws you off. It’s appropriate that he’s recording under the name Careful: Mr. Lindley sings his abstract pop songs about as quietly as he can while holding down a clear, confident tone.

On “Oh, Light” that voice jumps right in your head. It’s from a tradition of unnervingly confidential, light-voiced male singers: João Gilberto, Arthur Russell, Lou Barlow of Sebadoh, Elliott Smith, Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu. Beyond the singing, bare but surely played acoustic-guitar patterns hold down the songs. Here and there, as in the track “Every Epiphany,” he uses some of the obdurate strategies from electro-acoustic minimalism—loops, drones, digital pops as percussion—and makes gorgeous, multitracked, even gently Auto-Tuned surfaces.
