Ctrl by Derek Webb
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Fair Trade/Columbia
The follow-up to 2009's Stockholm Syndrome finds Derek Webb continuing to innovate, this time with an album based on a story he wrote with Josh Moore (who co-produced) and Allan Heinberg (a former Grey's Anatomy writer/exec. producer). Is it a fruitless search for something real, a cultural observation or a statement about the dangers of technology? Yes. The instrumentation is as much about setting a scene as it is about entertaining, employing nylon-string guitar, drum machines and Sacred Harp recordings. That said, the music easily stands alone, enjoyable regardless of the underlying theme.
