mp3: Gabriel Berrios – a burden

Although Gabriel Berrios has bounced around making music under a few different names for a while now, his sound has always remained fully developed and irresistible.  Carried by chiming guitar hooks and phrases, “a burden” is exactly what we’ve come to expect from Berrios’ songwriting.  “a burden” definitely downplays Berrios’ singing, which has really improved since his days as Tree Hopping, and instead focuses on stretching his muscle as an instrumentalist.  Released alongside the equally awesome “surface”, “a burden” is just another awesome, lo-fi, tropicalia-tinged slice of summery bliss that Berrios is so great at making.
