Dean Wareham’s first-ever solo project, 2013’s mini-album Emancipated Hearts finds the former Luna frontman delivering more of the melodic, psychedelic-tinged pop he has built a career around since his early days with the legendary indie rock band, Galaxie 500. His songs, which feature his laid-back, half-lidded vocal delivery, romantic, if often surrealist lyrics, and dreamy, hummable tunes, are practically a genre unto themselves. Emancipated Hearts, produced by Papercuts frontman Jason Quever, showcases all of Wareham’s musical trademarks in abundance. In Quever, Wareham has found a deeply sympathetic producer . . . setting him in what sounds like a large music hall and dressing his songs in layers of ringing guitars, vocal reverb, shimmery keyboards and a delicate assemblage of viola and violin. A gorgeous showcase that brings together everything you’ve ever loved about Wareham’s music, Emancipated Hearts isn’t just a mini-album, it’s a minor masterpiece. — ALL MUSIC GUIDE http://deanwareham.com/
