Waking Hours, by Photay (aka Evan Shornstein), is a meditation on time and our obsessive need to actively fill each moment. The NYC native’s search for calm is at the album’s very core; while he admits it was therapeutic to create, it’s not to be mistaken for a healing excursion. Largely electronic, frequents on the verge pop; extensively features Evan’s own vocals. Sonically intimate and inviting, it suggests Photay is perhaps at his best when blurring genre lines. CD in 6-panel wallet.
