Alright, buckle up music fans, we’re going on a Texas road trip packed with cool vibes and awesome guitar skills as we explore the EP “Disenchantment at a Distance” by Dallas local, Paul Bibbins. I tell you, this guy’s got the spirit of Hendrix flowing through him and playing out from his fingers.
Cue the light show because track one creates a psych-rock tableau that is pure visual audio. It’s classic Bibbins; energetic indie rock soaked in the color of a pro guitarist’s magic. The next three songs keep that amazing feeling going, each with its own tone, from hot to sweet.
Bibbins has done something pretty amazing here by mixing both heartfelt depth and some classic ‘rock n roll fun. There’s a common vibe but independence between tracks – a shared charm that brings to mind stars like Clapton and Paige while staying definitely Bibbins. You feel everything; the romance of wide-open Texas plains, the buzz of downtown Dallas.
When it comes to singing, Bibbins has a voice as comfortable as your favorite whiskey, yet still able to surprise you. His emotional touches blend perfectly with the huge range of his musicianship, making for an interesting sound tale just made better by the clever production.
All in all “Disenchantment at a Distance” stands as proof of years spent getting good at guitar while keeping up with today’s indie look, showing us again why Paul Bibbins’ talent shines bright beneath the Texas sky or anywhere else indeed.
