‘The Long Time Gone’ is a newly released concept album by Sebastian Howarth.
The album features short, intimate tracks alongside some instrumentally wider tracks that represent the expanse of its setting and theme. Though the production has a rough around the edges, home-grown vibe, it does well to use this to its advantage in telling the story of a man who’s doing the best with what he’s got.
Favourite tracks include ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘The Great Disaster’. These two conflicting songs highlight Sebastian’s ability to convey the opposing emotions and energies of a story that create dynamics both in the music and narrative.
