Customer Reviews

Lots to love

I've heard several tracks off this album both at The Current and on Messersmith's webpage. I have really loved what I've heard so far: "Dilinger Eyes", "Girl, Boy and a Grave", "Violetti". My advice would be to defintely NOT buy the album from ITunes, as Messersmith offers a pay-what-you-want feature right on his website for digital download. You can also give a listen to all three of his albums on his page. Frikkin' sweet. The song I keep playing right now is "John the Determinist". Good, good stuff.

Don't Let His Rivers Cuomo-esque Appearance Fool You, Jeremy Can Write A Good Pop Song

I was fortunate enough to see Jeremy Messersmith perform at the MPR booth at the Minnesota State Fair this past week. And he is GREAT live and really knows how to work a loop machine. That being said, the album does not disappoint. The sound reminds me of the 88 but a notch up. There are no songs on the album that I dislike. I definitely recommend the download of "Violet!" and "Dillinger Eyes."

nothing but the best.

Mr. Messersmith delivers yet again.
Since first hearing him in a small bar in Nashville, TN years ago, Jeremy Messersmith has displayed brilliant and at times eerie songwriting with beautiful musicianship telling stories that unfold over and over with added listens.

This album continues this legacy with a vengeance.

Buy this album, I dare you not to sing along by noon tomorrow.

Jeremy Messersmith is an indie pop singer/songwriter based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Born in South Carolina and raised in Washington, Messersmith relocated to Minneapolis to attend college, after which he began recording his quiet, often melancholic songs in his basement studio. His first album, 2006's self-released The Alcatraz Kid, began a sort of pop trilogy of albums that he would develop over the following four years. The album was well received regionally and drew the attention of Twin Cities...
