Often Lie

Denver Dalley’s follow up to Leave Your Name finds the lanky Omaha native upping the ante and delivering a record that is as poignant as it is potent. Often Lie begins with a breathy whisper, but it hardly murmurs for long before guitars hurtle in and the first power chord rings out. An album of mournful pop perfection, Omaha native and Desaparecidos co-songwriter Dalley delivers the goods here; delicate odes to forgotten radio DJs and loves lost are peppered with electronic flourishes while crushing choruses beautifully butt up against a melancholic wash of breathtaking production, but when push comes to shove Often Lie elegantly ends in a resounding crash.
