“Jared Colinger was but a blip on the Central Oregon music scene in 2007. He moved to the region from Tennessee to work with Redmond-based indie label Allalom Music, played only a couple shows (in living rooms, no less), and moved (along with Allalom) to Arizona in the last several weeks. To top it off, he officially released no music while he was here.

Colinger is basically a purveyor of bedroom pop that rocks ever so gently, worming its way into your head with warm, rich, and instantly familiar melodies. Honestly, the five songs on this CD are as good as any pop-rock made in 2007. The question is whether Colinger is motivated enough to capitalize on his talent. A recent blog post on his MySpace suggests the answer may be “no,” but here’s hoping he finds his muse again. Music like this deserves to be heard.”
