GSRV's first musical release in 3 years, "December..." was written and recorded over the course of 5 weeks beginning in the first week of December 2015 and concluding in the first week of January 2016.
Musically, "December..." follows in the Urban Folk footsteps of GSRV's previous albums. Rock and Folk foundations are built upon with harmonizing violins, heavily layered vocals, and blips and bleeps galore while Punk and Beatle-esque pop influences shine through on the last few tracks. The EP's eponymous final song commences with an existential cry reminiscent of Sufjan Stevens or Glen Hansard.
Lyrically, classic themes of nostalgia, eroticism, and spirituality abound.
An excellent first taste of GSRV if you've never heard him before and a welcome return for any familiar with his previous work.
