A Review of 'Hey Can I Talk to You for a Sec?'

“Hey Can I Talk to You for a Second?” is the debut album of Noah Carlin’s Care Package project. Fusing styles that range from classic indie rock on songs like “Hearing Loss” to more experimental lo-fi on long form song “TIME//DISTANCE” this album is an easy listen with a lot of relatable content. Kicking the album off with “The Vibe” was a strong choice as its lyricism focuses around topics like emotional vulnerability and past memories. However, I think my favorite part of the album was the RnB bordering track “Walls Up” because of both the catchy chorus and the piano carrying the melody. The stylized vocals of Carlin read similar to artists like Gus Dapperton and Rex Orange County but could also draw influence from acoustic favorites like Jack Johnson. Overall this album was an incredibly fun listen with some solid tracks. I would totally recommend streaming it if you enjoy music that carries a low light vibe or your looking for something chill during the night. “Hey Can I Talk to You for a Second” is out now on all streaming platforms.

Favorite Tracks: Walls Up and Patient
