Soltero

Soltero is the brainchild of Tim Howard, a Boston-based singer/songwriter with a knack for penning forlorn but clever laments about insecure people battling to keep afloat in a sea of regret and broken relationships. Howard's innovative imagery and original metaphors giddily flip traditional love-gone-wrong song conventions on their ear and inject some much-appreciated levity into the mix. Howard's wordplay is as likely to invoke a chortle as a tear without sacrificing the music's gravitas; it's better to have loved and lost, especially for the songwriting fodder. Musically, Soltero's songs are lo-fi indie folk, like a slightly less-countrified Silver Jews, or Pedro the Lion with a better sense of humor. Soltero's 2001 debut, Science Will Figure You Out, featured Howard fronting the Mobius Band in the studio. Recorded in Amherst, MA, it was a sparse, flawed affair that nevertheless showed obvious promise. After touring the Northeast (both solo and as a band) in support of the Mountain Goats, Of Montreal, and Town & Country, among others, Howard enlisted the help of Casey Keenan (drums), Ben Macri (bass), and Alexander McGregor (guitar, keys) to tour with and record Soltero's follow-up, Defrocked and Kicking the Habit. The sophomore effort, released in the spring of 2003 on Rhode Island's Handsome Records, mines the same subject matter as its predecessor but has a fuller, more varied sound, and an intriguing element of experimentation has seeped into Howard's songwriting, which would seem to bode well for any future Soltero efforts. ~ John Schacht

Just a mishmash of typos and dorkery whenever I come across my old comments. Oh, what I wouldn't give to get his other albums in the mix around here. He's all kinds of good.

Seconding Mike. Mike, when you ask for favors from the genome, it likes to be address by Oh, Holy Genome. Then it'll surely happen for you.

Soltero's "Hell Train" album really ought to be on Pandora as well. I'd say it's one of my ten favorite albums ever, from anyone.

How about it Pandora? Can you make it happen?

Soltero's "You're No Dream" is without a doubt the best album of 2008--and there were a lot of great albums in 2008. I'd love to see some of his other albums on Pandora as well--for instance "Hell Train," which ought to be regarded by music lovers as a modern-day "Pet Sounds."
