    For the unfortunate soul blessed with a regular non-holiday work week, here’s some music perfectly suited for the ease on in, into Monday. From multi instrumentalist Todd Grutreau, Crushed StarsGossamer Days is a sweet and fragile bit of bedroom pop…though the burning soul flickering away at the center of these starlit cuts is obvious enough. On this, his Stuart Sikes (Cat Power, Whiter Stripes, Modest Mouse) produced third album, Grutreau prefers to present the bare embers of his heart…as if any inferno of thought and emotion would be too much for the delicate silky strands of guitar and voice to handle. The result is an album of uncomplicated beauty. Glossy yet downtrodden, precious yet ultimately headstrong; Gossamer Days is a strikingly honest piece of music in the vein of Red House Painters and Kings of Convenience. – David Pitz

    Gossamer Days will be released tomorrow on Simulacra Records.
