Justus Proffit Shares Hole

You’re going to hear a lot of Elliott Smith comparisons with the new Justus Proffit single, and I suppose that’s fair, as the song definitely recalls Smith’s later work whilst living in LA, Proffit’s hometown. Still, while the song’s structure and usage of melody is definitely on point, there are some sounds that illustrate a songwriter carving his own path. Something about the guitar sound seems a bit more psychedelic, showing off a willingness to explore the negative space in his songs with sonic adjustments; he’s coming into his own, and it sounds glorious. LAs Got Me Down comes out on March 8th via BarNone Records.
