Face To Face

By: Laurie Gallardo

It’s swoon at first listen with opener “Many Hours,” today’s AMM featured track from Tearjerk‘s Face To Face. Right after some dreamy swirls of pedal steel, vocalist/songwriter Vanessa Jollay calls forth some all-too familiar pangs of regret: “Berate myself on Sunday morning / I’m used to it…” Though heartbreak and frustration are common threads throughout the EP, this is no pity party. Face To Face is the revelatory insight into one’s transformation when confronting the pain weighing one down. Letting go is the ultimate release, even if it’s not the easiest thing to do.

Catch Tearjerk at their show tonight, Tuesday July 11, at Hotel Vegas, on a bill with Deep Sleep, and the musical project of Reagan Smith and Tyler Heath, Daybed. Doors at 9 p.m.
