Volume One

The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library

Volume One

Self-released

Armed with a PhD and years of cataloging the best of the world’s music (his own library, where his project’s namesake comes from, has a record collection numbering in the tens of thousands) Michael J. Epstein has the musical chops to make his first band work.  The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library is comprised of Epstein and a selection of eight women whose talents range from adequate to skilled over a wide selection of instruments.  Epstein contacted them all over various social networking sites, from craigslist to Facebook, in an attempt to have a wide breadth of backgrounds and flavor to his album.  What results is a pop-sensible, lyrically clever collection of acoustic folk.  Musically there isn’t much here you haven’t heard before, but what stands out are the witty and often comical but always subtle verses.  If lyrics are your thing, Volume One will fit perfectly in your collection.

 

Released:  5/10/11
