Songs Of Our Times (Red Vinyl)
Since the release of his first single, back in 2009, Paul Messis has been a whirlwind of musical activity. Along with his own work as a songwriter, he is still an active member of The Higher State and The Suburban Homes. Now he's back full circle with his third full-length album, containing a dozen songs firmly rooted in his solid bedrock of sound, meshing jangly '60s-style garage-punk with folk-rock/folk-punk moves. This isn't a cookie cutter retro trip.
