Ball of Wax 36 Songs: Joey Beltram – “Red Lights”

Joey Beltram‘s “Red Lights” rides on the same moody, mellow waves as the surprisingly popular National – gruff baritone vocals singing a weary melody atop a bed of acoustic guitar strumming and tasteful drones, plucks and plinks. It’s pretty without a saccharin overdose, somber without being too weighty. Despite being relatively sparse, “Red Lights” is a really well put together song – every background vocal, every pipe organ part, even every reverb decay is in its right place.
