Nothing remains the same, ever. The Lust E.P. evolved in the years that followed Bryan Free's debut album, 'Poison I Drank From.' As a songwriter, Bryan Free still combines piano and introspective lyrics. But now you hear aggressive beats and synth lines. They don't replace the saloon persuasion of the older days: they lie down with the flute and horn section. The E.P. begins darkly, and quickly moves into a transitory space that speaks of Lust and Love, if there is any difference. Bryan Free examines our desire to kick at, embrace, and hate the world; then says 'it's cool,' and plays a waltz. Nothing remains the same, ever.
