Prolific New Mexico singer-songwriter Guy Grogan released his eleventh full-length album, Purgatorial Hearts, on New Year’s Eve of 2017. A dozen anthems for those “navigating their way through the wreckage of […] relationship battlefields,” Purgatorial Hearts‘ upbeat music belies its serious topic.
One of my favorite tracks was the Elvis Costello-esque “Tell Me Your Name Again”:
Grogan tracked the entire album himself, turning to award-winning Santa Fe producer Dennis Jasso to help with production. The result is a clean, bright sound that rings optimistic, even from purgatory. Stream the entire album on bandcamp or listen to the Spotify playlist. Fans of Grogan’s music are in luck — eleven albums in, it doesn’t sound like this Guy is stopping anytime soon.
