‘Desert, Sea And Grass’ is the latest 6-track EP from Wakefield’s Robert Fisher, also known under the alias, Salvage My Dream. Since 2008, Salvage My Dream has released an EP and two albums and has explored a number of different musical genres. In comparison, ‘Desert, Sea And Grass’ is a lot more serene sounding than his other work.
‘Lemon Tray’ is the song that kicks the EP off and is instantly likeable hit from the get go. Fisher‘s indie sounding vocals are complimented with a catchy tune and a light glockenspiel throughout the song and, as a whole, really sets the tone of the EP overall.
The EP continues with a folkie sound throughout and, despite a few of the songs sounding slightly too similar to one another, Fisher redeems himself with the EP’s final song, ‘Come Live In My Big Dream’, which has the perfect balance of huskiness and tune. It’s a lot slower than the rest of the album, but it shows that he can really branch out with his genre.
Overall, for listeners who prefer music such as Bon Iver and Bearhead, this EP is a must listen to. The songs are purposely not perfectly cut which makes it sound a lot more natural than an EP that has been over-produced. Salvage My Dream has a really raw and special talent that truly manifests itself in this EP.
