Review of Joshua Van Tassel – Dream Date (Backward Music)

Joshua Van Tassel

An acclaimed musician who has backed the likes of David Myles and Kate Rogers, Joshua Van Tassel’s latest solo outing is a wonderful passage through dreamy soundscapes. With the exception of two songs featuring vocals from Justin Rutledge and Kate Rogers (The Warmest Heart and I Think You’re A Salesman respectively), Van Tassel proudly wears his diverse influences on his sleeve. Whether it is the Kid A-inspired sounds of Sneaky Beard or The Warmest Heart, Van Tassel’s uncluttered approach to making music is one that demands your attention.
